T-Mobile Carrying iPhone to Germany November 9

Posted in Apple,iPhone,News,T-Mobile by Reuben Drake on September 19th, 2007

Apple announced the launch of the iPhone in Germany with T-Mobile for November 9Today Apple made an announcement, as expected, that the iPhone would be coming to Germany with T-Mobile as the carrier. What we weren’t as sure about is the launch date since the release for Germany wasn’t announced at the same time as the UK. But it looks like Apple isn’t going to let Germany go around iPhone-less any longer than its neighbors and the mobile gadget will launch on the same day – November 9.

There were some differences in todays announcement compared to Yesterday’s. Like everywhere else, the German version of the iPhone will not support 3G, however there was no mention of the hundreds of Wi-Fi hotspots that will be scattered around to provide data connections like O2 is planning for the UK. Also no service plan rates were announced, but they did say the the iPhone itself will be going for €399 (about $550 USD).

iPhone Will Hit the UK Nov. 9 With O2

Posted in Apple,iPhone,News by Darrin Olson on September 18th, 2007

iPhone coming to the UK on November 9 with carrier O2Apple made their announcement earlier today that the iPhone is indeed coming to the UK and as expected O2 will be the carrier. The iPhone is expected to be available on November 9 and will go for 269 pounds (about $540 USD).

There were a couple of surprises in the announcement however. There was no news about which carriers would have the iPhone in other European areas such as Germany and France, but announcements for these are expected to happen later this week. Also, that 3G support we were thinking we would see for the UK folks is not going to be available. To try to overcome some of this, O2 will work with The Cloud to install over 7500 free Wi-Fi hotspots that the iPhone can connect to for data. Nothing too exciting…

iPhone Hitting Europe This Week?

Posted in Apple,iPhone,News by Chris Weber on September 16th, 2007

Apple is planning an announcement in London on Tuesday which could be announcing the iPhone launch for EuropeApple has announced a press conference in London scheduled for Tuesday, having sent invitations with its usual shrouded itinerary titled only, “mum is no longer the word”. Most speculate that this press conference is set to announce the launch of the iPhone and its carriers in Europe.

Apple has planned a European launch in the 4th quarter of this year for the iPhone with its sleek look and sought after multi-touch interface. Many analysts are speculating on the carriers for the iPhone to most likely be Spanish Telefonica’s O2 for the UK market, Deutsche Telekom’s T-Mobile for Germany and Orange for France. These carriers are also of course remaining tight-lipped about any related information regarding the iPhone launch while rumors swirl that they might not only be sharing data revenues …

Apple Store $100 iPhone Credit Now Online

Posted in Apple,iPhone,News by Darrin Olson on September 14th, 2007

iPhone $100 store credit for early iPhone ownersIf you’re one of those on the cutting edge of Apple technology and got yourself an iPhone soon after the launch, that $100 Apple Store credit Jobs offered you in lieu of a $200 price reduction is now available online. The process is pretty simple and gives instant gratification (no snail mail involved); just follow the instructions on the website and enter in your iPhone phone number and serial number and then Apple will message you with a special access code. Once you enter that in you’re good to go.

If you’re wondering if you qualify, the $100 credit applies to anyone who bought the iPhone from AT&T or Apple at full price prior to August 22. But, rumor has it that some of those who have purchased the new price-reduced iPhones have been able to enter their number and get the credit anyway. No confirmations on that on – you might expect some recourse if you do get that to work but hey, it’s worth a try.

iPhone for Europe right around the corner?

Posted in Apple,iPhone,News by Chetz on September 11th, 2007

iPhone may be coming to Europe soonAccording to an industry analyst Apple may be on the verge of announcing a 3G compatible iPhone, possibly before the weekend arrives. That would be welcome news to our European cousins that have been wanting an iPhone of their own that isn’t unlocked and that is covered by a warranty.

Analyst Will Strauss of Forward Concepts made the statement based on circumstantial but compelling evidence including a deal brokered last week between Interdigital and Apple. The terms of the seven-year deal allows Apple to use Interdigital’s IP for iPhones and any future Apple mobile phone products.

Apple Hits 1 Million Mark With iPhone

Posted in Apple,iPhone,News by Reuben Drake on September 10th, 2007

Apple announced that it had sold 1 million iPhonesApple announced today that only 74 days after the highly hyped and anticipated June 29 launch of the iPhone the company has now sold their one millionth unit, and the holiday shopping season hasn’t even hit yet.

Steve Jobs noted in the release from Apple that it took almost two years for the company to sell one million iPods, which makes this a pretty impressive feat. With the holiday season coming and a recent $200 price cut on the 8GB model, the company likely stands to sell quite a few more.

Also, consider how many of those iPhone sales were the 8GB model sold at full price, where Jobs and company are going to be crediting $100 for each one. But, we’re guessing this was planned from the beginning and Apple can grab that extra $100 million from …

This announcement was met with different responses by those wanting an iPhone, basically depending on whether or not they already owned one or not.

In response to “hundreds” of emails, today Steve Jobs published an open letter on the Apple website stating that they “need to do a better job taking care of our early iPhone customers” and offered a $100 Apple store credit to anyone that had already purchased an iPhone, but not before reminding us that technology is a bumpy road …
