France Telecom to sell 100K iPhones in 2007

France Telecom's Orange subsidiary plans to sell a little less than 100,000 iPhones in 2007 and also plans to offer an unlocked version of the handset for a price that is well below T-Mobile Germany's $1500, according to Orange CEO Didier Lombard. Analysts estimate that Orange has to move about 3,000 iPhones a day to make the goal of nearly 100,000 iPhones by year-end.

T-Mobile Germany rival Debitel also announced that it would provide a $890 rebate for iPhone users who buy an unlocked iPhone from T-Mobile Germany for $1500 and activate it on Debitel's network.
