Reuters is reporting that Apple has stuck a deal with two cell carriers to begin authorized sales of the iPhone in Russia, as early as October.
Estimates are that up to 3.5 million iPhones could be sold in the country in the first two years.
Up until now, there have been no authorized dealers for the iPhone in Russia, although over half a million units have apparently entered the country.
With the 3G spectrum already being the 'existing cellular standard' in much of the world, there's little doubt that Apple will be targeting numerous other countries in the coming weeks and months.
