Deutsche Telekom's T-Mobile has sold 120,000 iPhones: report

BERLIN (Dow Jones)--Deutsche Telekom AG's (NYS:DT) mobile phone unit T-Mobile has sold 120,000 iPhone mobile phones so far, of which 75,000 were sold in Germany alone, the unit's Chief Executive Hamid Akhavan told weekly magazine Focus.

In an advanced released copy of report due to be published Monday, Akhavan said that T-Mobile's sales expectations have been surpassed and while Apple Inc.'s (NAS:AAPL) delivery problems had left customers waiting for their new mobiles, he expects the backlog to be cleared by the end of the month.
