iPhones in France to be available with Orange

Apple has just announced that Orange will be the Wireless Carrier to support the iPhone's release on the 29th of November.

It has took sometime for Apple to come up with a deal along with Orange. Looks like this decision was taken due to the legislation problems in France that demanded from Wireless Carriers to unlock handsets after six months, at the users' request. It's a great task for Apple to keep the iPhone locked, it's rather surprising to see that they have given in to allow the sale of unlocked handsets.

I guess that France is the next location for Geeks to travel in order to buy a Legitimate iPhone that'll work with all carriers and without any OS changes. Don't you think that the Geek travel will increase to France just for this one reason apart from Soccer.

It's almost too good to be true. One thing that leaves a shadow of doubt over the iPhone's release in France is the fact that a price for the unlocked version has not been revealed yet. The locked version, however, will be available for USD 400, starting with November 29.
