A common complaint heard from overseas Apple fans is that Apple Maps may work decently enough here in the States, but it's far less accurate for destinations within the borders of other countries. But that's apparently not the case in Britain. In fact, according to at least one 4G network provider in the United Kingdom, it's actually dominating Google Maps in terms of traffic.
The U.K. mobile market may soon see some disruption, courtesy of Orange and T-Mobile, who are rumored to join forces and rebrand as Everything Everywhere in October, and an 4G LTE iPhone could be the club they use to beat back competitors.
Orange, one of the UK carriers of the iPhone 4 recently sent out an email to customers letting them know that the white version of the iPhone 4 could be delayed "until the end of the year." The email went on to explain that customers looking to get a white iPhone 4 should consider getting the black version instead.
The U.S. isn’t the only country racking up record iPhone sales: France Telecom’s Orange brand reports an impressive 77% of their handset sales this holiday season were for Apple’s popular device, and the CEO says they’re happily reinvesting some of that moolah back into their data infrastructure.
Because we all know how much you want to move to jolly ol' London, but can't bare to live with the fact that you will have to get an iPhone with O2. Turns out you might be able to pack your bags by October.
