New 16GB iPhone will be international

 

The US will not be the sole market for the 16GB iPhone after Apple confirmed that the new model is being released in the UK, and that other European countries will follow.

A company spokesperson told www.vnunet.com that in addition to its availability at AT&T and Apple Stores in the US, the new iPhone is also being sold by Apple and its partners in the UK.

Apple, O2 and Carphone Warehouse all carry the 16GB model, which retails at £329.

The spokesperson added that the new phone will also be supported by Orange in France and T-Mobile in Germany, although a release date for those countries was not given.

Apple released the new iPhone on 5 February along with a 32GB version of the iPod Touch, which is currently available worldwide.

The announcement marks the first time that Apple has made two versions of the iPhone available for UK users. The company discontinued the 4GB iPhone in September, two months before the device was launched in the UK.
