With the Christmas shopping season now officially on, Carphone Warehouse, Britain's biggest mobile phones retailer, is hoping to hit it big and raise its sales with a range of "flashy" new mobiles, the iPhone and its imitators included, but is concerned about the coming year after the excitement has died down.
"Christmas has started earlier than for two or three years. A range of new products, such as touch- screen pre-pay phones, have really struck a chord with consumers," said Finance Chief Roger Taylor.
