Good news for brits, iPhone UK price slashed

Posted on Apr 17 2008 - 11:58pm by Paul

Good news for brits, the apple iPhone had a £100 decrease in price starting from April the 16th. There are currently no plans to cut the price of the 16GB version. O2 – The UK mobile network provider and Carphone Warehouse a major cellphone high street retailer announced there £100 price cut in the cost of the 8GB iPhone and it seems to be going very well. The reduction comesamidst the price cuts by T-Mobile in Germany.

The 3G-enabled iPhone is launching in June and it seems that T-Mobile and O2 are clearing the stock of the first iPhone model released to clear some space on the shelves for the 3G-enabled iPhone. The really bad thing recent for UK buyers of the iPhone is that O2 are not giving refunds on recently bought iPhones e.g the last month, due to the price slash.

Many users of the iPhone usually jailbreak there device as they disagree with O2’s exclusive deal with apple. When the 16GB iPod launches in the UK in June it will cost a staggering £330.

Although, when you buy an 8GB iPhone realise it will only have 7.3GB data storage for songs, videos and images available and a 16GB iPhone have 14.4GB available when both are empty as, the devices have additional software which takes up some of the memory.
