FRANKFURT (Dow Jones) T Mobile, the mobile services arm of Deutsche Telekom, said Friday it has sold more than 10,000 of Apple's iPhones on the first day of sale so far in Germany.

Customers bought the phones via the company's shops or on the internet, T-Mobile said.

"The company is well prepared to further meet high demand for the iPhones," T-Mobile said in a statement.

Speaking on television Thursday, the company's Chief Executive Rene Obermann said that its possible demand in Germany for iPhones during the Christmas sales season may outstrip supply.

Deutsche Telekom's T-Mobile unit has exclusive sales rights for the trendy cellular phone in Germany.

Sales also started in the UK Friday, with Europe's largest mobile phone retailer Carphone Warehouse expecting to sell 10,000 iPhones on the first day of sale in the U.K.
