Mobile Phones: Orange Sells Record 30,000 iPhone 3GS on First Day

Orange has revealed that it has recorded sales figures of over 30,000 iPhone 3GS handsets on the day of its release, a first day record for the British mobile industry.

Online PR News – 12-November-2009 – – Within hours of becoming only the second UK network to supply iPhone 3GS handsets, Orange revealed record sales figures of over 30,000 on the day of release. This figure is thought to be a landmark figure as a new first day record for the British mobile phone industry.

The latest success for Orange somewhat makes up for the fact that the France Telecom-led company missed out on securing exclusivity for the iPhone in the first place and has rewarded the company for its extensive pre-order process.

Orange is basing its marketing ploy on the fact that its overall network coverage is significantly greater than its competitors, providing greater connectivity for iPhone consumers on the move and in the office. Its pricing is comparatively similar to its high street rivals, O2, but Orange executives hope that its service quality will attract further consumers.

The attraction of the iPhone 3GS is maintained due to its impressive flexibility and versatility, boasting hundreds of closed source applications that can entertain and intrigue consumers at the touch of a button. Interestingly, Orange revealed that its first UK iPhone application, Orange Wednesdays, has already shot to the top of the entertainment category.

There is a host of Apple mobile phone accessories ( that can also improve connectivity and reliability of the iPhone 3GS.

Complete with Bluetooth connectivity, a Bluetooth in-car kit can make that long road trip or journey more bearable by streaming mp3’s from your iPhone whilst driving. This device can simultaneously make and receive phone calls to enable consumers to stay ahead of the game.
