O2 sells tens of thousands of iPhones in Britain: Perhaps the "free crumpet with purchase" giveaway helped?

iphone.jpgO2 is reporting that they sold “tens of thousands” of iPhones over the weekend, which means that tens of thousands of Brits are wandering the streets with mini-computers as we speak. O2 is very please and believes this is in line with expectations.

As there are only twenty thousand people in Britain at any one time — they’re too polite to push onto the island so most of them stay on Ibiza until it’s their turn to come back — this means the majority of the population owns an iPhone . Excellent work, O2!
