Orange announced today that it sold its one millionth iPhone. While that is a significant number for the nation of 60+million, there are lots of non Orange iPhones running around the country as well. Until the iPhone was launched in November of 2007, many unlocked iPhonees were floating around the country (including ours;). Then, at the end of last year, France’s competition council ruled that the iPhone must be carried by all vendors. All of the other mobile vendors are now carrying the iPhone and have for the last six months.
Apple doesn’t break any of its iPhone numbers out by countrybut it is pretty clear that it has been a success internationally.
Orange is celebrating the occasion by giving its customers a free live coverage French Open Tennis app.
