TIM’s interest in iPhone no revelation at all

     Over the past few days, an Apple enthusiast site has been reporting that TIM ( Telecom Italia Mobile ) is interested in carrying the iPhone in Italy. As the market-leading cellular service provider in Italy, TIM is a giant in the Italian telephony market in both fixed line and cellular space and would be considered the prime candidate ( in terms of assets owned and resources possessed ) for making a deal with Apple to be the sole carrier of iPhone. Furthermore, TIM’s 3G service is the single fastest growing compared to other alternate carriers so it would be best suited to carry a 3G iPhone in the future. TIM also operates in a number of other international markets such as Brazil and Peru.
