    Apparently the British (maybe Europeans in general) are a little more frugal.

    well, most iPhones are either being unlocked and shipped to foreign shores, or simply flogged on eBay. A guy was in an 02 shop and told me he just bought 12 to sell on the 'Bay.

    I myself have bought 3 and sold them on for profit, netting myself an (im sorry) xbox and 3 games for £110

    But yes, they are selling like hotcakes ^_^

    In the UK you can buy the iPhone without immediately signing a contract? I wasn't aware of that. I thought that's only possible in the US.

    Regarding the article: comparing those sales to any other phone that didn't have a price drop 2 days ago is rather pointless. What would be interesting: how much they're selling per day one month from now.
