Orange’s first day of iphone sales on Weds 10th Nov topped 30,000 units. However the claim that this was the largest sale in one day in the UK is questioned by O2 in Gomonews. So it looks like there’s going to be something of a battle between the two operators in the run up to Christmas.
Current iphone sales levels in the UK are somewhat fuzzy, but they passed the 1 milliion mark in Feb 2009, so current estimates suggest somewhere between 1.5 and 2 million phones in the UK. Of course the winner in all of this is Apple.
