- T-Mobile may offer iPhone for discount, with contract – anyone care to guess at how slow sales are in Germany?

- France’s first month 70,000 iPhone sales just a hair short
- First month French iPhone sales fall shy of target – 30K below a stated target of 100K, 48% to new subscribers, less than 3.5K unlocked (no wonder, given the price). More interesting is the curve implied: 30K in the first week and 40K in the three weeks afterward…

- O2 spending big bucks on iPhone advertising – actually, just under 20 million UKP. Some perspective required.
- Apple press release – does not detail the exclusivity period.
