Apple are congratulating themselves on what they are calling their most successful launch and claim they could have sold more iPhone 4 deals had stock been available. 1.7 million in a matter of days is nothing short of a miracle given the state of the economy but it just goes to show the power of Steve Job’s marketing machine. Even the 3G and 3GS only sold 1 million in the days after release.
Perhaps, given those volumes, the teething problems that some users have experienced were inevitable. Were similar problems encountered with the 3G or 3Gs or even the iPad though? Not that we can recall, so is the iPhone 4 release really a total success if you move away from the numbers? On balance, the answer has to be yes, the iPhone 4 is one heck of a bit of kit.
iPhone 4 deals are currently available ?n th? United Kingdom on Vodafone (Vodafone iPhone), Orange (Orange iPhone) & O2 (O2 iPhone). We’ve previously questioned why T-Mobile and 3 network haven’t stepped up to the plate but will let you know as soon as they announce their iPhone deals.
As ever, we should also remind you that the best iPhone 4 deal is right here in front of you. Why not grab a free iPhone 4, sim free, no contract. Simples!
