O2 has confirmed that the company will carry the iPhone in Ireland, with a launch date set for March 14. The launch was confirmed in an account of likely performance indicators for O2’s fourth financial quarter; a website touting the device’s launch is now online.
As in the UK, the iPhone will be available through O2 retail stores and through Carphone Warehouse. Pricing is similar to other European countries, as the 8GB model will sell for €399, while the 16GB model will run €499.
Tariffs will begin at €45 a month. This news follows a report from yesterday, which found support for O2 Ireland in the latest iPhone software.
