Russia's OAO Mobile to sell Apple's iPhone

OAO Mobile TeleSystems, Russia's largest wireless company, will sell Apple Inc.'s iPhone 3G in Russia, Europe's biggest wireless market by subscribers. Mobile TeleSystems signed an agreement with Apple to sell the phones in Russia and other former Soviet Republics starting this year, the company said yesterday. The other two companies who have deals with Apple to sell the iPhone are OAO VimpelCom and OAO MegaFon. Russia is already one of the biggest markets for the device because of illegal imports.
