iPhone Sales in Germany Disappointing So Far

According to Bloomberg:

T-Mobile, the wireless unit of Deutsche Telekom AG, is selling fewer Apple Inc.'s iPhones in Germany than its internal forecasts, Financial Times Deutschland reported, without citing anyone.

T-Mobile is selling fewer than 700 units of the combination handset and iPod digital music player a day, compared with as many as 10,000 mobile devices sold daily during Christmas, the German newspaper reported. T-Mobile is the exclusive distributor and operator of the iPhone in Germany.

The cost of the phone and the different dynamics and maturity of the European market may be responsible for the disappointing sales. In France the iPhone has fared better.

But here's a contradictory report that says the iPhone is a top product in the UK, France and Germany.
