Orange, Apple’s wireless partner in France, announced today that it has sold its millionth iPhone in that country. Originally selected to be Apple’s exclusive carrier in France, Orange began selling the iPhone there in November 2007, as one of only a handful of companies participating in the launch of the first-generation device. Orange enjoyed an exclusive arrangement with Apple until December 2008, when France’s competition council ordered Apple to permit the iPhone to be sold by other carriers as well. The sale of 1 million iPhones represents an important milestone for the growing success of the iPhone outside of the North American market.

To celebrate its success, Orange France is offering iPhone plan customers unlimited viewing of the French Open tennis tournament via the Roland-Garros iPhone application. [via CNet].
