Beeline is not renewing contract with Apple



Hi-Tech Mail reports that Beeline will not be renewing its contract with Apple.  Beeline is the last of Russian carriers who make such a decision. Beeline is planning to offer Samsung devices instead of iPhones.

This will undoubtedly influence the dividends, as the 12-1 billion means 4-5 dollars of each share.
