UK iPhone vendors cannot reveal sales figures According to UK carrier 02, Apple has taken steps to prevent it from revealing any sales figures to the public for the iPhone. According to O2's head of media relations, Simon Lloyd, the sales agreement held with Apple does not allow the company to reveal any such details under Apple is OK with it. Of course, Lloyd did not reveal any official figures to The Register, but stated that sales were "in line" with its expectations.
"We're not releasing the physical number of handsets sold by O2," he said. "We await with interest to see what Steve Jobs says at Macworld." Carphone Warehouse also confirmed that it is under the same constraints. "The restriction is true and we won't release either our financial sales figures or the number of iPhones we've sold," a spokesman for the UK company stated.

Steve Jobs will deliver a keynote speech at the upcoming MacWorld expo, where he is expected to announce movie rentals for the iTunes service and tout sales performances for the iPod and iPhone.
