Just 5 days after the full commercial launch, France Telecom’s Orange has announced that they’ve already sold 30,000 Apple iPhones which debuted at 6:30pm on November 29th in France.
France Telecom reports that:
• 48% of iPhone sales led to a new Orange line subscription
• 80% of customers signed up for a dedicated “Orange for iPhone” plan at the same time
In addition to the 30,000 sales, the enthusiasm shown for the dedicated “Orange for iPhone” plans demonstrates the appeal of the offer, says France Telecom. As well as Internet services, customers have unlimited e-mail and Visual Voicemail, WiFi access, and a range of talk time and SMS tariffs designed for various needs.
“This is a very good score, especially as one in two iPhone purchases is accompanied by a new Orange line subscription”, said Louis-Pierre Wenes, Executive Director in charge of France operations, in the press release. “This confirms that the iPhone will make an active contribution to the acquisition of new customers”, he added.
