Apple and France Telecom are facing difficulties coming to a final agreement on the distribution of the iPhone in France, according to French weekly Challenges. France Telecom, which operates under the Orange brand, confirmed last week that an agreeement had already reached, stating, “We have signed an agreement with Apple to sell the iPhone.” Challenges reports that Apple and France Telecom are battling over the percentage of service revenues that Apple will receive as part of the deal. If an agreement is not reached soon, says the report, a pre-holiday launch of the iPhone may be in jeopardy.
