A German court has given T-Mobile Germany until close of business on Wed. to make the iPhone available for rival carriers, after Vodaphone took the cell phone carrier to court, filing an injunction.
T-Mobile is standing firm, however, and right now, they have said in a statement that they will “oppose the preliminary injunction filed by Vodafone”
So what does this mean to iPhone owners in Germany? Well, probably not much right this second, but if Vodaphone ultimately wins in court, the iPhone could be forced to either be non-exclusive in Germany – or get the hell out.
Vodaphone has no plans to go to court in other markets at this time.
