Latest iPhone hits the shelves
19 June 2009 — 2:00 PM
With the Apple iPhone 3G S officially hitting stores from today (June 19th), O2 has outlined some of its plans.
The network-exclusive device is being made available to those visiting the carrier's high street shops from 8:02 BST, with Carphone Warehouse and Apple Stores also stocking the device.
In addition, O2 reminds people who already have an older iPhone that the latest version of the operating system has been made available through iTunes and will update many handsets with a host of new features.
Ronan Dunne, chief executive of the firm in the UK, said Apple had continued to offer mobiles that were "phenomenal" and this had boosted their own standing in the sector.
"The combination of the new software update available to all and the new range of iPhone 3G S devices allows us to continue to differentiate O2 in the marketplace," he added.
Other smartphones set to go head-to-head with the new Apple device include the Nokia N97 and Palm Pre.
