David Manners (Electronic Weekly’s ) writes about a meeting he had with Luigi Licciardi, the executive vice president for technology and operations at Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM).
Licciardi confirms what everyone essentially knows: that TIM will be delivering a 3G version of the iPhone to Italy. Licciardi, however, actually gives us a solid timeframe for the launch:
â€œWe will be selling an iPhone with 3G capability next monthâ€, Luigi Licciardi, executive vice president for technology and operations at TIM told me yesterday evening on a bus taking us out into the desert for dinner following the first day of the International Electronics Forum 2008 in Dubai.
“Next month” conveniently coincides with Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC), which takes place from June 9th to June 13th in San Francisco, CA.
