70,000 iPhones in Germany
Deutsche Telekom, the owner of T-Mobile, says that some 70,000 German iPhone subscribers have been added in the 11 weeks since the product's debut in the country on November 9th of last year. "The iPhone is by far the most sold multimedia device in T-Mobile's portfolio," according to Philipp Humm, the head of T-Mobile Germany. Reuters notes however that this figure is roughly equivalent to the number of iPhones sold by Orange in France, which only began its sales on November 28th.
Apple claims that some 2.3 million iPhones were sold worldwide during the December quarter alone, and that the total has been over 4 million since the June 29th American launch. This is despite the fact that only France, Germany, the US and the UK currently sell the device. Plans are said to be in the works for wider release, to countries such as Canada, Thailand and Sweden.
