Deutsche Telekom chief executive Rene Obermann said Thursday the company has so far sold more than 100,000 of Apple’s iPhones since the device’s November debut in Germany.
At Telekom’s annual general meeting in Cologne, Obermann said the iPhone was the most popular multimedia device sold by the company’s T-Mobile cell phone division.
He added that iPhone customers use the Internet 30 times more on average than other mobile telephone customers and one-third of iPhone customers bought the top priced service plans.
Company spokesman Alexander von Schmettow declined to specify the sales figure beyond 100,000 or forecast future sales but said the iPhone was “meeting expectations.”
