19 February 2007 — Amersfoort (NL): Tech Data Europe and T-Mobile International have signed a distribution agreement that will see T-Mobile’s range of mobile data made available to Tech Data’s IT reseller customers throughout Europe over the next few months.
According to Tech Data, this agreement reinforces the company’s focus on mobility following its recently announced joint venture with Brightstar, designed to capitalise on the evolving mobile and wireless device market.
Wolfgang Pregel, VP of broadline marketing for Tech Data Europe, said: "This agreement is particularly timely with our recent announcement to form Brightstar Europe. With the addition of T-Mobile to Tech Data’s vendor portfolio, we are in a strong position to enable our resellers to make the most of the opportunities that exist through the activation of data cards."
He added: "With more corporations, SMEs and consumers now looking to extend their flexibility by subscribing to 3G data services, the agreement opens up new business for our customers with additional margin through the sale of network tariffs."
