iPhone not as popular as expected
Apple’s iPhone hasn’t quite been the sales success many thought and after a strong run up to Christmas post the festivities it’s declined.
I don’t think the problem is not the device itself, I’ve played with one and was impressed by the form factor and the UI, although I don’t know if some aspects to all that gesturing might begin to be plain annoying after a while. But the real issues are the lack of an out of the box connector for work based email and….the price. All up with the 18 month contract we’re talking a penny short of £900, the handset itself being the fat end of £300, which for a country raised on discounted or free handsets is about as popular as Jade Goody. Prices have already fallen in the US and the 4Gb model has dropped so maybe the UK market reciprocate.
