2 Million iPhone Handsets Sold Says O2 UK
Although O2 UK recently lost their exclusivity over the iPhone they have still managed to notch up some 2 million iPhone sales announced the chief exec of O2 UK Ronan Dunne and Telefonica Europe chief exec Matthew Key reports Reuters.
O2 was the first to offer the iPhone in the United Kingdom in November 07 and thus benefited from early sales, while Orange and Vodafone have only recently begun offering the iPhone in the UK.
Dunne also stated that sales of the iPhone along with good sales of the Palm Pre have helped O2 UK finish the year well and he anticipates that the next set of trading results will show that O2 UK was the only operator to gain growth for the period.
Matthew Key stated that O2 Germany was also showing signs of improvement although added that the Czech Republic and Ireland were still tough.
