Orange France: 90,000 iPhones sold

Orange iPhone sales

Orange France, the official wireless carrier for Apple iPhone in France, has broken its silence regarding iPhone sales figures, revealing that it has sold 90,000 iPhones in total since the device went on sale in late November last year through January 31st, 2008 according to Pocket-Lint. 86 percent of those phones were sold with one of Orange's tariff packages, while 14 percent were sold as legally unlocked. O2 UK recently revealed that the iPhone is its fasting selling device for the UK, noting that the device has helped it achieve 9.5-percent revenue growth during the final quarter for 2007. While O2 did not provide specific sales numbers for the device alone, it said that the iPhone led its strongest quarter on record, adding 483,000 customers and 276,000 contracts to its roster.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has predicted that new markets could "effectively double" the potential market for iPhones every year and may help Apple sell as many as 45 million iPhones during 2009, according to the analyst. The growth is enough that the cellular business is considered Apple's most potential-laden business and may supersede other categories that the California company depends upon for its current success.

    I feel old

    Yesterday i'v seen my first iPhone in the wild here in Belgium, a 70 year old granddad showing off his hacked iPhone. :/

    Doesn't seem like a big number, we're all waiting for that 3G model and some cheaper tariffs.
