The iPhone has seen continued strong sales in France since the device spread from Orange to competing carriers Bouygues Telecom and SFR in April. According to a Le Figaro report (Translated Link), Apple is expected to see 2009 sales between 1.8 and 2 million iPhones in France, representing around 8.5% of the 23.5 million phones sold in the country this year, and 20% in terms of market value. “Sales are significantly higher than that of Christmas 2008, since all operators offering the iPhone,” said Matthew Cortesse, director of telecoms research firm GfK. Among smartphone sales, Apple is expected to have sold more than half, with total smartphones sales expected to come in at around 3.5 million units.
