T-Mobile: 100,000+ iPhones sold in Germany

100K + iPhones in Germany

T-Mobile has sold over 100,000 iPhones in Germany, according to the head of the carrier's parent company, Deutsche Telekom. CEO Rene Obermann made the statement Thursday as a follow-up to statistics from January, which indicated that it had sold 70,000 iPhones since the device's local debut in early November of 2007. While the figure points to a relative slowdown in sales, T-Mobile board member Hamid Akhavan says that this is "about in line" with corporate targets.

Akhavan further comments that price cuts on the 8GB iPhone, to as low as 99, have recently helped boost sales. These cuts will cease to apply as of June 30th, but many analysts believe that Apple will release or at least announce a 3G iPhone before that date arrives.

    Is this a good...

    number sold or not? I can't tell if they don't give a reference to other smartphones sold numbers. I hope they sell three times as many 3G iPhones. If the iPhone has every feature including the kitchen sink and a cheaper price, there'd be no reason for anyone to not buy it.
