orange to carry the iPhone in France
following one more announcement, apple will have the iPhone in the hands of the Europeans by the end of the year (UK with O2, Germany with T-Mobile, and France with Orange).
some HUGE issues apple will have to contend with is Europe is SO far ahead of the US when it comes to cell technology – will the iPhone be a step backwards (at least network speed etc.)? nokia gives away some sweet phones in the European markets, why would someone spend 500+ pounds on a phone and then some serious coin on a data plan in this market…
only time will tell. apple says they will be working to get them out by the 2nd week of november.
