The BBC are reporting this morning that O2 are about to sign an exclusive contract for selling the iPhone in the UK, with the handsets in stores ready for Christmas. Funnily enough an O2 spokesman “declined to comment on the reports”.
The agreement with O2 is reported to include Apple receiving a continuing share of the revenue generated for the network operator.
The handsets are expected to be sold for about £300 and O2 will be hoping that the lure of the fashionable phone is enough to win customers from rival networks.
Update: O2 have denied they’ve got the iPhone gig. See this blog entry for more details.
