Deutsche Telekom hits the 70,000 iPhone mark in just eleven weeks

[photopress:germaniphone.jpg,full,right]It’s been eleven weeks since the iPhone invaded Germany, and in that time Deutsche Telekom has sold 70,000 units. That comes out to almost 40 an hour, if they were selling 24/7, which, given German efficiency, they likely were. Having Hasslehoff as a spokesman probably helped as well.

The lion’s share of the iPhones are still American, by far, but the fact that it’s picking up this kind of steam across the Atlantic is proof that it’s not just a luxury item, it’s a mass-market sensation.
