iPhone sales in Britain on November, Apple Inc. says

According to Apple CEO Steve Jobs, Apple Inc.'s iPhone will go on sale in Britain on Nov. 9 have the O2 network as its exclusive carrier.

Jobs told a news conference in London that the 8-gigabyte model will sell for 269 pounds (US$536, EUR 386).

Apple's announcement in London was bound to spur speculation about further launches in Europe. For months, rumors have circulated that Germany's Deutsche Telekom AG has been in talks to carry the iPhone in Germany through its T-Mobile wireless unit, while Spain's Telefonica and France's Orange have been touted as likely candidates to offer the device in Spain and France.

None of those companies has confirmed if they have even been in talks with Apple about such a move.

Cupertino, California-based Apple announced last week that it had sold its one millionth iPhone in the United States, just 74 days after the combination cell phone-iPod went on sale there and less than a week after its price was cut by a third.

The company cut the price of the 8-gigabyte iPhone from US$599 to US$399 (about EUR 432 to EUR 288) and discontinued the US$499 (EUR 360) 4-gigabyte version. It apologized to those who had paid full price and offered US$100 (EUR 72) credits to early buyers.
