iPhone coming to shops near you in UK

The Apple chief executive, Steve Jobs, today confirmed that the company's much-hyped mobile handset, the iPhone, will go on sale to British customers on November 9th.

At a press conference held at the company's flagship London store, Mr Jobs announced that the iPhone - a mobile with built-in iPod and internet capabilities - would be available for £269, plus the cost of a contract.

He also confirmed, as expected, that the sole operator in the UK will be O2 and available in CPW stores.

So its on its way.

Apple's iPhone is set to become Britain's first £1,000 mobile phone when it is launched in the UK on November 9, it emerged today.

The basic handset will cost British consumers £269 - £69 more than in the US - but Britons must also sign up to a contract costing at least £35 per month with Apple's chosen network partner, O2, for a minimum of 18 months.

That puts the cost of the handset and contract at between £899 and £1,259, depending on the call plan.
