I know our friends in Europe have been anxiously been awaiting news on when the iPhone (did you know Apple made a cellular phone? It is true!) will arrive on their shores. The Financial Times is reporting that Apple has reached a deal with three different providers:

T-Mobile of Germany
O2 in the UK
Orange of France

Interestingly, FT reports that Apple is getting 10% of the fee associated with calling and text features for every iPhone sold through these providers which is the first deal of its kind in Europe. Makes one wonder what kind of deal Apple has with AT&T here in the States.

An official announcement is expected to come from Apple and these carriers in August.
