Three Ireland is rumoured to be readying an iPhone launch of its own
Three mobile will start selling the iPhone in Ireland this Summer, according to a report in The Sunday Business Post.
The phone, which was originally only available on the O2 network, has recently gone on sale from Vodafone and is rumoured to soon have a third carrier. The report carried in yesterday’s edition of the newspaper says talks are ongoing between Three and Apple and the network hopes to have the iconic phone in the months ahead.
Following a recent leak Apple is believed to be readying a fourth version of the iPhone device, with many expecting its arrival by next month. Even if a deal between Three and Apple was done before then it is unlikely that they would want to carry the current generation iPhone with a better version believed to be just weeks away from launch.
Should Three begin to carry the iPhone it will mean all but one of the main networks in Ireland was offering the phone. Meteor would be the only remaining player without Apple’s mobile and the Sunday Business Post’s article quotes a company spokesperson who said they do not plan to change this at present.
