Steve Jobs has announced the details for the launch of the iPhone in the UK.

It will arrive in the UK on the 9th of November and set back customers £269 in addition to an 18-month contract starting at £35 a month.

The tariffs will include unlimited data surfing as well as access to the UK’s largest single public Wi-Fi network, covering over 7,500 cafes, restaurants, airport lounges, pubs and other locations across the UK.

Apple also revealed that in order to register an iPhone, owners would need to have a PC or Mac with the latest version of iTunes installed as well as an Internet connection and a major credit card.

"We are coming to the UK and wanted to pick the best carrier and that is O2," Apple boss Steve Jobs said at a news conference in London.

The Carphone Warehouse will also be participating in the selling of the iPhone with it placing an iPhone 'expert' in each of its 1300 stores.
