The Financial Times reports that UK sales of the Apple iPhone weren’t quite up to par, selling 190,000 phones against a target of 200,000 in the first two months. Some analysts even projected sales in the range of 350,000-400,000. Many cite the high price of the phone, saying the average phone is free and the average plan is under £30. In the UK the iPhone goes for £269 and the plan is £899 over 18 months. In U.S. Dollars thats $529 for the phone and $98/month for the plan. Ouch.
