Phone giant O2 has announced that the popularity of the iPhone has continued to soar, despite the firm losing its exclusivity deal with Apple last year.
The company said that it has officially sold two million handsets since the mobile was released back in November 2007.
Ronan Dunne, chief executive of O2, said that the company’s continued domination of the iPhone market is because consumers are still associating the mobile with their previous exclusivity deal.
Despite new handsets coming onto the market, including the Palm Pre, O2 is now selling around 80,000 iPhone devices each month, up from around 70,000 in 2009.
Speaking about why the iPhone is so popular, a review on Mobile-Phones.co.uk said that the device’s stunning touchscreen user interface “is one of the seven wonders of the modern world”.
It added that combined with a camera, music player, web browser, email compatibility and other features, the iPhone is a beauty, which has also been much improved by the latest 3GS model.
