US sales may disappoint, but European carriers eager to carry Apple phone

While American analysts question whether an iPhone price cut means the uberphone is a disappointment, European analysts wonder how Apple secured as much as 40 percent of all revenue from partner O2, the British wireless carrier, on the eve of the iPhone's impending European launch. Orange and T-Mobile have been "confirmed" as the French and German mobile carriers, but things could change as Steve Jobs continues to negotiate for even a larger share of mobile revenue.
