    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 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.

    That makes one million Europeans that have made the intelligent realization that the iPhone is far better than anything Nokia has ever made.

    So France has a population of about 64 million and they have sold 1 million iPhones. So one in 64 people have an iPhone.

    Not bad I guess.

    This is only going by *one* of the service providers. The article states that France has multiple providers selling the iPhone, so its almost certainly quite a bit higher than 1 million.

    For your advice :
    - SFR sells 100.000 iPhone since April 8th (launch day)
    - Bouygues Telecom sells 40.000 since April 29th (launch day)
