O2 has released figures claiming it has sold 2 million iPhones since the launch of the device on its network in 2007. The company said the Palm Pre was selling well, and along with the iPhone, had helped it to achieve a good 2009 in the UK. Matthew Key, the chief executive of Telefonica Europe, and Ronan Dunne, chief executive of O2 UK, said the operator was still enjoying a boost from being the first operator to sell the Apple phone.
O2 said it had also enjoyed industry-leading churn in Britain, meaning it was retaining more customers than any of its rivals.
Vodafone announced in January that it had sold 100,000 iPhones in the first week since launch, including pre-orders. Orange is believed to have sold 200,000 iPhones in the UK since launch in November.
