The Financial TImes is reporting that “people familiar with the situation” told them that O2’s total Apple iPhone sales in the UK for the first eight weeks was about 190,000. That’s an average of 3,400 UK iPhone sales per day over the first 8 weeks.
O2 said shortly before the iPhone’s UK launch that it expected handset sales of 200,000 in the first two months.

The Apple iPhone was O2’s fastest-selling handset “by a significant margin,” according to the report.
