T-Mobile sells more than 70,000 iPhones

Most popular multimedia device on the network, carrier claims

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

T-Mobile Germany has sold at least 70,000 iPhones, the German carrier announced this weekend.

T-Mobile, part of the Deutsche Telekom group, launched the Apple handset in Germany on 9 November, and the figure reported on Saturday represents the number of customers who've signed up to its iPhone airtime package.

Of course, sign-ups and handset sales are not the same thing, especially since for a time T-Mobile was selling iPhones that could be unlocked - a requirement imposed upon it by the German court, though this was later lifted.

How many iPhones T-Mobile has sold that have not subsequently been linked to its network isn't a number the carrier or Apple are likely to want to make public.

Still, even that 70,000 figure makes the iPhone T-Mobile's most popular multimedia product, Philipp Humm, the head of the German network, said on the company's intranet this week, Reuters reports.

Clearly, Apple's getting something right, despite the flabberghasted grumblings of the many iPhone-haters out there. It's not selling only to the 'shiny, shiny, woot' crowd.

Two weeks ago, Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced the company had sold 4m iPhones since the handset's first went on sale, in June 2007.
