Tesco to sell Apple iPhone on Tesco Mobile tariffs

This morning Tesco Mobile announced that Tesco would be selling the Apple iPhone with Tesco Mobile SIM cards and tariffs.

Our push to get Tesco Finder (and soon, Tesco Grocery Shopper) into the Apple iTunes App Store was because of our desire to bring customers a great mobile experience of Tesco services in the knowledge that this news was coming (yes, I have to agree to 'vows of silence' on some topics of business sensitivity, even on this blog!).

The press release from Tesco Mobile:

25th November 2009

Tesco Mobile through its joint venture partnership with O2 is pleased to announce that it will shortly introduce iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS in Tesco Phone Shops and online through Tesco Direct in the UK.

Tesco Mobile hope to get iPhones in stock before Christmas, which us insiders can best describe as 'Splendid'!

  1. "Tesco to sell Apple iPhone on Tesco Mobile tariffs"- its very engulfing to know that technology is at its new high and developing every minute, but before buying any phone i would request telecom companies to raise awareness among their client base on the recycling of cell phones don't just sell mobile phone , teach people to donate or recycle the old one. and for readers who will recycle their cell phones can get cash , vouchers etc on recycling and Countless mobiles phones, however, still end up in landfill sites where there is a real risk they will leak toxic waste, polluting rivers and watercourses and contaminating agricultural land. Highly toxic dioxins can be also emitted into the atmosphere if phones are incinerated in waste plants.


As this blog grows in readership - and because it carries the Tesco brand - I have had to become more careful about the sort of comments that are acceptable. The good news is that I'm a champion of free speech so please be as praising or as critical as you wish! The only comments I DON'T allow through are:

1. Comments which criticise an individual other than myself, or are critical of an organisation other than Tesco. This is simply because they cannot defend themselves so is unfair and possibly libellous. Comments about some aspect of Tesco being better/worse than another equivalent organisation are allowed as long as you start by saying "in my personal opinion.." or "I think that...". ... followed by a "...because.." and some reasoned argument.

2. Comments which are totally unrelated to the context of the original article. If I have written about a mobile app and you start complaining about the price of potatoes then your comment isn't going stay for long!

3. Advertising / web links / spam.

4. Insulting / obscene messages.

Ok, rules done - now it's your go:
