Deutsche Telekom says has sold 70,000 iPhones
COLOGNE, Germany (Reuters) - German telecoms operator Deutsche Telekom (DTEGn.DE) said on Saturday it had signed up 70,000 iPhone customers in the 11 weeks since November 9, 2007.
Deutsche Telekom's mobile telephony arm T-Mobile is the exclusive seller of U.S. Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) iPhone, a device allowing users to play music and browse the Internet while on the move as well as making phone calls.
"The iPhone is by far the most sold multimedia device in T-Mobile's portfolio," the head of T-Mobile Germany, Philipp Humm, said in an interview published on T-Mobile's Intranet, or in-house Internet web site.
French operator France Telecom FTE.PA said on January 10 it had sold more than 70,000 iPhones since they arrived on November 28.
Apple Inc said on January 15 it had sold 4 million iPhones since the launch at the end of June.
