Apple confirms O2 as exclusive iPhone distributor in the UK
Apple had announced that British mobile operator O2 will be the exclusive UK carrier for the Apple iPhone when it makes its debut in the UK on 9 November 2007.

iPhone combines three devices into one - a mobile phone, a widescreen iPod, and a mobile Internet device - all based on Apple’s multi-touch interface and software that allows users to control iPhone with just a tap, flick or pinch of their fingers.

Apple sold its one millionth iPhone just 74 days after it went on sale in the US on June 29.

iPhone users in the UK will be able to activate their new iPhones using Apple iTunes software running on a PC or Mac computer from their own home or office, without having to wait in a store while their phone is activated.

Activating iPhone takes only minutes as iTunes guides the user through simple steps to choose their tariff, undertake a credit check and activate their iPhone. Once iPhone is activated, users can then easily sync all of their phone numbers and other contact information, calendars, email accounts, web browser bookmarks, music, photos, podcasts and TV shows just like they do when they sync their iPods with iTunes.

iPhone is scheduled to go on sale on 9 November and will be sold exclusively in the UK through Apple’s retail and online stores, O2 and The Carphone Warehouse's retail and online stores. iPhone will be available in an 8GB model for £269 (inc VAT) and will work with either a PC or Mac. Three new great iPhone tariffs will be available from O2 starting at £35, which all include unlimited anytime, anywhere mobile data usage and, in a market first, free unlimited use of the UK’s largest single public Wi-Fi network, covering over 7,500 cafes, restaurants, airport lounges, pubs and other locations across the UK.
