Orange reveals iPhone sales less than 100,000

3 Apr 2008

Orange France has released sales figures for the Apple iPhone, reporting that it has shipped just 96,000 units since launching the device in November. According to Pocketlint the French operator has sold 86% of the total with one of its four iPhone price plans, while 14% have been sold without any form of contract. In January this year France Telecom (FT) said its mobile arm had sold more than 70,000 Apple iPhones in the month following the launch of the much-hyped handset, a figure it claimed was broadly in line with the company’s target of between 50,000 to 100,000 sales. FT chief executive officer Didier Lombard has set a target of 400,000-500,000 iPhone sales in 2008, but with fewer than 30,000 units shipped since then, it remains to be seen whether Orange will get close to achieving this goal.
