UK iPhone This Week

9:05 AM -- We're all abuzz about the iPhone over here in the U.K. because the famous phone goes on sale at 6:02 p.m. this Friday, November 9. (See iPhone Invades UK, O2 Gets UK iPhone, iPhone UK Launch: Jobs Has 'Upset Girlfriends', Slideshow: iPhone Hits London , and Jobs Leads iPhone Into UK.)

The Finanical Times reports that Telefónica UK Ltd. plans to sell 200,000 iPhones in the U.K. over the Christmas and New Year period.

My local O2 and Carphone Warehouse Group plc (London: CPW) shops are getting ready to stock their shelves with iPhones this Friday. O2 retail outlets will be closed between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. while the shops are loaded up with the Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) devices. My local 02 shop says it expects to get about 100 iPhones and has a waiting list of about 20 to 30 people.
