With the recent news this week regarding Orange and T-Mobile’s agreement to stock Apple’s iPhone handsets this Christmas, it was almost inevitable that Vodafone would soon follow suit. In an effort not to get left behind in the mobile market, Vodafone’s deal once again brings an end to O2’s exclusivity of Apple mobile phones.
It would appear that Vodafone have clinched a deal that will see them sell iPhone handsets from the beginning of 2010, although interested consumers can already register their interest online over the coming months.
This latest announcement sees Apple extend its branches in the mobile market, potentially attracting a further 300 million users that are currently contracted with Vodafone worldwide. Both the iPhone 3G and the latest iPhone 3G S are to be sold by both Orange and Vodafone. There are a number of benefits for the consumer with these latest breakthroughs, being able to enjoy the use of an iPhone on a wide range of UK networks.
