Deutsche Telekom: 70,000 iPhones in 11 Weeks

It appears that Germans are just as interested in Apple Incorporated’s iPhone as American customers. German telecoms operator Deutsche Telekom announced it has 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 iPhone. "The iPhone is by far the most sold multimedia device in T-Mobile's portfolio," said Philipp Humm, the head of T-Mobile Germany.

In my opinion, despite the constant positive statistics regarding the iPhone, I believe sales are actually starting to slow down, and the only thing that can get them back up is an iPhone Nano or, more realistically, the iPhone SDK, set to debut next month. I'm not ruling out the former, however, as Apple tends to release an expensive bigger and better model before offering a smaller and cheaper version, which also happens to sell even more than the first.

I'm personally waiting for the 3G version.

And I won't buy it till official unlocked ones are sold (is that ever going to happen?).

Like you I won't buy as too expensive contract and prefer the pay as you go model and needs 3G, but..

I find this quote interesting

Right, so while statistic are positive about iPhone sales, and I take it due to know other evidence being presented such as alternative statistics being presented that they are slowing down, you've pulled an opinion out on they are slowing down? (While I don't disagree with you, as many people will wait for the soon to be released SDK, and the upgraded phone out with it plus lower price of the present phone) so facts to back you're opinion would be nice

Why is the iPhone the only cell phone people care about tracking? I don't see any other type of cell device tracking. Why should the iPhone be special? Oh, wait, its from Apple, thats why.
