September 29, 2009, By Atul Roach

Apple has realized that the exclusive carrier factor may keep the iPhone popularity intact but at the end of the day it is the sales numbers that matter.

Vodafone UK-Gets-Sales Rights for-Apple iPhone 3GS

Where US carriers are also on the verge of selling the iPhone 3GS other than AT&T, the UK will now have three carriers selling the hot doodad. After Orange and O2 UK, Vodafone has also bagged the rights to sell the iPhone 3GS in a deal concluded last night.

As per the grapevine, Vodafone will sell the iPhone 3G S £100 cheaper compared to the other two carriers which in turn may affect the prices announced by Orange and O2.

The phone will arrive at the Vodafone UK stores early in 2010 which augurs well for the sales of iPhone in the UK. Vodafone has already been selling the iPhone 3G S in other countries but the UK opportunity took a while owing to the exclusive O2 deal. We wonder Apple will play a role in pushing the price parity!
