Mobile phone networks T-Mobile and Three both announced over Twitter today they will be retailing the Apple iPhone 4, as of Friday this week.
Unveiled in a very low key way, whilst also showing the two networks have embraced social media was the unusual way they publicised they will be stocking the new iPhone, both in their shops and online too.
T-Mobile and Three have previously never sold Apple handsets directly, nor have they officially supported them on their own networks.
It has been reported their staff have undertaken sales training this week in preparation of the stores early opening hours on Friday morning, solely for the expectant rush of sales over the counter and also for those who have pre-registered and ordered the mobile phone in advance.
T-Mobile announced and confirmed the arrival of the new Apple mobile in the twitter message " #iPhone 4 launching on T-Mobile on Friday July 30th. Official pricing announcement expected imminently ".
Mobile phone network Three was more subtle, by responding to a Tweet from a customer with the message " iPhone 4 will be on sale in our stores from Friday!! " .
T-Mobiles prices for the iPhone 4 were the highest of all the networks, although there could be a revision of the unwelcomed prices due to the end part of their message.
Three has the most competitive costing model of the larger networks, where they undercut most deals with a cost of just £99 on a £30 a month tariff.
