Sonaecom expects iPhone win

18 Sep 2007

Sonaecom says it is well placed to win a lucrative contract with Apple to act as the Portuguese distributor for the popular iPhone device. Sonaecom’s 19.9% owner France Telecom has won the distribution rights for the iPhone in France and Sonaecom says this puts it in a strong position with regards to Portugal. Sonaecom owns the country’s third largest cellular operator, Optimus. AT&T, the exclusive distributor of the iPhone in the US, recently racked up its millionth sale of the new device in less than three months.
