iPhone comes to Vodafone
Vodafone officially launches the iPhone today, marking the end of a long wait for some of you.
The network is offering the 16GB free for all qualifying upgrades and new customers on Perfect Choice Access 300 price plans and higher plans, until March 31st.
Meanwhile, Digital Reach Group has estimated that there are about 250,000 iPhones active on Irish networks. This was spilt between O2, Vodafone and Wifi access. O2 made up about 35 per cent of traffic according to DRG, while 10 per cent comes from Vodafone iPhone devices.
This seems like a fairly high number. The figures were compiled by analysing the mobile web traffic to DRG’s network, which served up 80 million ads in seven months reaching over 500,000 people.
However, it’s not easy to find out the official number, because O2 don’t release exact sales figures. The mobile network did say though that the iPhone currently outsells other smartphones on its network.
