It looks like France won’t see the iPhone before the key christmas trading period. The stumbling block appears to be France Telecom’s group fear that Apple can’t lock the device correctly to thier network. So it’s pretty clear that Orange has it’s ear to the ground and aware of the unlocking that is taking place of the US iPhone. [via] – (in french)
Hopefully the 8gb Nokia N95 will make the stores before christmas instead.
