iPhone to launch in UK on Nov 09 and selects O2 as Mobile carrier

Its the turn of the chaps across the atlantic to get their hands on the the latest gadget sensation...iPhone.

Apple has chosen O2 as the selected carrier for the 18 month contract that comes with the iPhone, which was on expected lines.

The Tech specification of the UK iphone are the same as the US one. Still no 3G for the moment only EDGE and WiFi!


* 8GB flash drive

* 3.5-inch (diagonal) widescreen multi-touch display
* 480-by-320-pixel resolution at 163 ppi
* Support for display of multiple languages and characters simultaneously

* Quad-band (850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz)

Wireless data

* Wi-Fi (802.11b/g)
* Bluetooth 2.0+EDR


* 2.0 megapixels

The only major difference seems to be the price which is $541, much higher than the $399 in US. Or is the genius Steve Jobs planning to give another store credit after 74 days ?
