Tesco now selling iPhone

Supermarket Tesco have started a ‘mobiles war’ by launching Britain’s cheapest iPhone in time for Christmas.
As of yesterday (14.12.09) the iPhone 3G 8Gb handsets are available at 100 Tesco stores and online for £222 on a one-year £20-a-month deal. If you want the 3GS 16Gb version, expect to pay even more!
The must-have handset is currently only available from O2 and Orange, whose lowest monthly tariff is £29 for an 18-month contract using the 3G 8Gb version.
Tesco’s move could trigger a price war in the New Year, as Vodafone are also due to start selling the iPhone.
Tesco mobile boss Lance Batchelor said: “We’re delighted to make the iPhone available. It’s now affordable for all, with the best deals in the UK market.”

The iPhone – voted Britain’s coolest brand in summer – launched here two years ago and two million have so far been sold. It can be used to access the internet and send and receive emails – and has an massive array of applications.

Orange, which has Britain’s largest 3G Network, last night insisted its iPhone was better value. It said: “We remain the only operator that allows customers to walk out of a store with an iPhone for free, on a less than £30-a-month tariff.” Vodafone have not yet made a comment.
Meanwhile, Motorola have launched its Milestone smartphone. It has the world’s thinnest sliding keypad at just over 13mm! Nice!
