Vodafone UK sells 100,000 iPhones after a week
Vodafone UK just recently started offering the Apple iPhone and has been on a streak since it was made available last week. Over 100,000 units have been sold so far – showing what kind of staying power the iPhone still packs among consumers. Guy Laurence, Vodafone UK CEO, stated “The demand from both consumer and business customer has been phenomenal. They want an outstanding phone on an outstanding network and we’re delivering that.”  With Apple’s announcement less than a week away, we’ll see how many more units Vodafone can crank out before news of a possible next generation handset hit the waves. Just reaching the 100,000 mark in such a short amount of time really goes to show how Apple’s venerable smartphone is still coveted among people all over the world.

Yes, Vodafone controls most of Verizon Wireless, I think 45% if I'm not mistaken. To post #1, over 150k Droids were sold stateside only. Considering the age of the IPhone in a crowded market in the UK. 100k sold is not too shabby.

The IPhone always has and will always be the best of the best. Even the 3rd generation (3GS) is a force to be reckoned with. Every other phone that comes out is trying so hard to be better than the "IPhone". Every phone that comes out is compared to the "IPhone". This clearly shows you that the IPhone is and always will be KING!! I cant wait til the 4th generation IPhone is released so I can bask in the next piece of IPhone's magnificent glory. Well done Apple, well done.

there are much better phones out now than the current 3gs...i mean only a 3 mp camera with no flash? once the iphone 4g comes out that will be something to boast about, but until then the iphone is a failure.

Typical comment from you. Why am I not suprised. Keep telling yourself that the Iphone is not the best. If it helps you sleep at night, then go with it.
