They are releasing these statements to puff up their "negotiation power". Makes total sense. Three months ago "European network providers" called Apple "arrogant" and their demands "ridiculous" in the press. And now? Everybody is happy. I don't know whether Apple will make a step towards them or they towards Apple, but it is clearly all rhethoric at this point. Of course they will share the revenue, and sell locked SIMs, if the deal is sweet enough for them!
