O2 CEO: iPhone ‘fastest selling device’ he’s ever seen [updated]

Peter Erskine, CEO of O2, has said that the iPhone “has been the fastest-selling device we have ever seen,” according to a Times report. Exact figures for the iPhone’s UK launch have yet to be released, with the Times claiming that Erskine said it had sold “in the tens of thousands,” while a CNN Money report states Erskine said it had sold “hundreds of thousands” of the devices since its Friday debut. Aside from the sales numbers, both reports indicate that “around two-thirds of iPhone customers are new to O2,” and that foot traffic through the operator’s stores has been better than expected.

Update: CNN Money has issued a correction to its report, reflecting the correct “tens of thousands” quote from Erskine.

I tend to believe this article instead:

Which paints a much different picture.
