Apple will cut revenue sharing from iPhones in Italy?

According to a report from Italian newspaper la Repubblica, Apple is going to revamp their revenue business model upon the launch of iPhone there.

iPhone will be launched by Telecom Italy there and it seems that carrier won’t have to pay Apple a share of the data revenues like it happens in other countries. Telecom Italy will not have ongoing exclusive either, which will make iPhone more expensive than it is elsewhere.


Moreover, according to the report, Telecom Italy will have an advantage of several months before other carriers will be able to sell the iPhone.

It is an interesting turn of events from Apple, who said that the will not change their business model.
