Deutsche Telekom's mobile phone division, T-Mobile, said on Wednesday it won a deal to sell Apple's iPhone and said the price would be 399 euros ($558), as reported last week by Reuters.

The popular media-playing device, which has been on sale in the United States since the end of June, will be available from November 9.

Monthly rates will be announced shortly before the phone goes on sale, T-Mobile Chief Executive Hamid Akhavan said.

He declined to give a sales target and or details on any revenue-sharing deal with the U.S. consumer electronics group.

Akhavan also declined to be drawn on any plans to sell the iPhone in other countries where T-Mobile is active, saying: Right now we are only talking about Germany.

The phone will be available exclusively in T-Mobile shops.

Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs said he was delighted to work with T-Mobile, adding that he hoped the deal would continue for many years.

On Tuesday Apple announced it had chosen O2 UK -- part of Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica -- and European mobile phone retailer Carphone Warehouse to bring the iPhone to Britain.

Apple is expected to hand a French deal to France Telecom's Orange later this week.
