3 to offer iPhone next year

Orange will sell it next month

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Orange UK will start selling the iPhone early next month. And 3 has said it will offer the in-demand handset next year.

Orange will begin selling the handset in Britain on 10 November – one day after O2’s two-year exclusive ends, according to a report by The Guardian.

Orange announced in late September it would “bring the iPhone 3G and 3GS to Orange UK customers later this year”. So far, it has refused to specify an exact launch date.

It’s not yet known how much Orange will charge customers for the iPhone 3G and 3GS.

Meanwhile, Kevin Russell, Chief Executive of network operator 3, reportedly said at a recent event in Westminster that he expects “the iPhone to be on the 3 network sometime during 2010”.

Vodafone has also said it will sell the iPhone, but not until “early 2010”. T-Mobile is already offering the iPhone 3G to business customers. ®
