UK showing strong interest in iPhone 3G

O2, the iPhone’s exclusive carrier in the United Kingdom, has revealed that more than 130,000 potential customers have pre-registered their interest in the iPhone 3G since the product’s unveiling last week. Only 35,000 people pre-registered their interest in the previous iPhone between September 18 and November 9 of last year, suggesting that the inclusion of 3G cellular technology and a substantially lower price has helped spur interest in the new handset. Ronan Dunne, O2 UK chief executive, said the price of the original phone had been “an issue for some segments of the market,” while adding that iPhone customers were spending an average of 30% more a year on their mobile plans.
