Orange today announced that it has sold one million iPhones in France since its initial offering of the original iPhone in November 2007. In recognition of the milestone, Orange is offering its customers free access to its Roland-Garros iPhone application, providing tennis fans with mobile viewing of the upcoming French Open.
In the release, Orange also highlights a number of other iPhone applications that have been released by the wireless provider:
- Orange TV, with access to over 60 television channels in mobile HD TV quality
- Liveradio, with streaming access to thousands of webradios worldwide
- Spotfinder, for finding the nearest WiFi HotSpots, by address or geolocation
- Mazonevido, for viewing and sharing videos on the web and mobile phones
Orange was the exclusive iPhone provider in France until a court ruling in December 2008 forced Apple to allow other carriers to offer the iPhone for sale. Bouygues Telecom and SFR have since become official iPhone providers.
