Orange France claims 200,000 iPhones sold in December

updated 10:40 am EST, Mon January 11, 2010

Country a healthy iPhone market

Orange France sold "a little over" 200,000 iPhones during the month of December, according to Stephane Richard, the deputy CEO of the carrier's parent company, France Telecom. Price cuts were used to boost sales, but only late into the month, suggesting that the iPhone was already a popular product. Orange is also just one of several carriers selling the product in France, competing with the likes of SFR and Bouygues Telecom.

The country is believed to be one of Apple's more lucrative iPhone markets. Sales doubled once Orange lost exclusivity, a consequence of French pro-competition laws. The partnership of the two companies may be helped in the future by the release of a tablet, which Richard suggests will be announced in the near future and include a webcam, and possibly 3G access.
