£200 Apple iPhone wins UK vote

iPhone fever is set to spread in the US over the next few weeks, with Apple ready to release the handset across the Atlantic. But, while Apple has started putting plans in place to launch the iPhone in the UK, it’s unlikely we’ll be able to buy one until the end of the year at the earliest.

Nonetheless, the iPhone.tv blog is already measuring interest among UK consumers. According to its survey, 46 percent of respondents will only purchase the iPhone if the price is right; with most people seeing £200 as the upper limit.

Plus, Apple’s indication that it will use one mobile operator only to launch the iPhone in the UK – T-Mobile looks a likely contender at the moment – might prove a sticking point. Just one in four people would be willing to dump their current mobile operator to switch to the iPhone, according to the survey. iPhonic.tv also claims the iPhone will have to get past Nokia's N95 handset if it hopes to become the coolest mobile phone in the UK.
