iPhone sales going well in UK and Germany The Apple iPhone has finally gone on sale today in both the UK and Germany and early reports show that sales are brisk in both countries.
T-Mobile has said that more than 10,000 phones had already been sold in Germany, and that there were lines in front of stores waiting for the device.

Since its launch in the US in June, about 1.4 million units have been sold and Apple hopes to ship 10 million phones next year. More European launches are slated for the end of the year and the phone will reach Asia in 2008.

One complaint of European buyers however, must be price. The phone is selling for 399 euros ($587 USD) in Germany and 269 pounds ($566 USD) in the UK. In the US, the phone sells much cheaper at $399 USD.

Are we to expect price cuts in the near future on European iPhones?

The cheapest tarif available in Germany is 49,00 Euro per month. You're bound to a 2 year contract, so all in all look at 1575 Euro ($2314.00) to have the latest toy for 2 years.

I'll just stick to my no-frills Nokia 6125, thank you very much. :-)

That's right, Europe always gets the shit end of the stick when it comes to price, compared to the US. It's the US dollar price but in Euros, all the time. I honestly don't know why the companies think that everyone over here is a fucking millionaire. :-Z

Yes folks, that's 269 in UK money, plus an 18 month contract at 35 per month. So all in all, that's a whopping 899 (Or about 1800 USD). That's what we're expected to pay for a device that will probably only be cool for the first 12 months of the 18.... and that'll be when we're expected to go for the next big thing.

As good as it looks, NO THANKS.

Well the good thing about Europe is it is a land locked continent and you can travel to places pretty easily i do say just travel to a european country that the phone is cheaper in and have a holiday at the same time.
