Apple and Orange's Appeal Dismissed
"With this decision, Bouygues Telecome will soon offer the iPhone as soon as the conditions for distribution (are) finalized with Apple," the company said in a press release translated from its original French. "This decision is a significant step forward for consumers who can now choose freely."Bouygues Telecom is already in talks with Apple to sell the iPhone 3G as well as SFR, the second largest French mobile carrier. AT&T hasn't been challenged much in the U.S. court system over their contract with Apple. We will probably still have to wait until that contract expires in 2011 to have any chance of legitimately using the iPhone on a different carrier's network, regardless of yesterday's ruling.
