German iPhone inquiries

The largest Apple retail in Germany says that it is getting more than 1000 requests per day regarding the iPhone, which will likely begin shipping in the country later this year. "Fifty-seven thousand interested people have already registered with us," the head of retailer Gravis, Archibald Horlitz, told Germany's Tagesspiegel "Every day, we get about 1,000 more." Reuters reports that the retailer's tracking shows 58 percent of those interested in buying the the iPhone said they would consider switching operators if necessary. It is currently not known which European provider will carry the iPhone; T-Mobile, Vodafone and O2 are all in the running according to speculation.

Elsewhere in Europe, rumors are circulating about a potential forthcoming announcement by Apple CEO Steve Jobs regarding an exclusive iPhone carrier in the UK. Steve Jobs visited the Regent Street Apple Store in London, earlier this week, sparking rumors that the executive is visiting the UK to put the finishing touches on an iPhone contract with an unknown UK-based cellular carrier.
