The iphone’s launch on Vodafone on Thursday 14th Jan saw record day one sales. The network sold 50,000 units, compared to Orange’s 30,000 units on their first day in December 2009. As with all of the iphone ‘records’ there is no information published about O2s sales, but I would suspect that their first day of selling the iphone 3GS saw similarly high volumes.
Vodafone’s first day sales were in spite of a post Xmas lull in retail sales. It seems that the UK’s love afair with the iphone continues.
