Default Well I'll Be...iPhone its 'fastest selling' device ever in UK

O2: iPhone its 'fastest selling' device ever in UK

By Charles Starrett

News Category: iPhone

Reporting its fourth quarter financial results, O2 has said that the
iPhone is the fastest selling device it's ever had in the UK. "In the
UK, we outperformed the market again, posting like for like revenue
growth of 9.5% for the year, above the top end of our guidance range,"
said Matthew Key, CEO of Telefonica Europe. "The UK added 483,000 net
customers in the quarter including 276,000 on contract, the highest
number ever, helped by sales of the iPhone, the fastest selling device
that we have ever had in the UK." The iPhone launched in the UK on
November 9, 2007; the company this morning revealed that it will begin
offering the iPhone in Ireland on March 14.

I imagine the clueless executives at any wireless provider who were
offered the iPhone and turned Apple down are now unemployed for
screwing up big time.

LOL

Whoa whoa, sport. Read it again and stop changing it.

Iphone is the fastest selling thing __O2__ has ever sold, not the fastest
selling device ever in the UK. There's quite a difference!

"O2 has said that the
iPhone is the fastest selling device it's ever had in the UK. "
^^^^^^

Perhaps, or perhaps they're sitting at their desks wondering why O2 didn't
release the actual number of iPhone sales. O2 estimated, IIRC, that they'd
sell 200,000 iPhones by Dec.31, yet their total number of contract sales
for all phones for the entire quarter was only 276,000.

If they'd hit their target wouldn't they have bragged about it rather than
hidden the number in the total?
