T-Mobile signs Tech Data Europe

Phone company delighted and excited

Tech Data has struck a deal to distribute T-Mobile goods and services to resellers across Europe.

In a written statement, Tech Data said it would be distributing T-Mobile's full range, including GPRS/EDGE and UMTS/HSDPA (3G) data cards, notebooks with embedded SIM modules, and bundled SIM cards.

Michael Wilkens, executive vice president of wholesale, multinational partnerships & channel development for T-Mobile International, said in a written statement that he was "delighted" with the deal. He said the product range was "exciting".

Resellers could sell PDAs, notebooks and so-on that had already been configured by someone else up the supply chain.

They could also sell "activation services", or activate the data cards they sold to their customers. They could also make an unspecified margin on the sale of network tariffs.

The distribution deal is already running in Holland, the Czech Republic, and Austria, and will soon be underway in Germany. The firms didn't say when the deal would be up and running elsewhere in Europe. ®
