The iPhone made its highly anticipated European debut on November 9, 2007.  Offered only in 8GB form, it retailed in the UK for £269 ($538) and locked buyers into an 18 contract with exclusive provider O2.

The European release differs from the US release most notably in the larger box size and the inclusion of the O2 logo on the reverse (instead of AT&T).  We have included a side-by-side photo for comparison.  Unlike the first-release 8GB model in the US, the Euro first release featured 13 icons on the face, not 12. 

Our factory sealed offering, although very clean throughout, is not a flawless example.  There are two small slits in the seal on the face at mid-point as well as two very small breaks in the seal on the bottom panel near the edge.  Otherwise, excellent display value with great color, surface, and sharp corners.  The perfect piece to round out a complete First Generation, first-release iPhone collection!  Model A1203, Order MB213B/A (8GB)

 

Est. $10,000 - $20,000
