After it appeared that the French division of Orange has no right to sell iPhone exclusively in France it became clear that actually the French regulatory authorities have done a great service to Apple as the phone sales have doubled since the abolition of the restriction. According to Morgan Stanley the market share of the company in the country has increased to 17 percent, according to Gartner in France this summer have been sold 600 000 iPhones. This makes the country Europe’s largest phone market for Apple. Analysts say the biggest victim of this is RIM and its line of smartphones BlackBerry. This effect is expected to recur and other markets where the iPhone is offered by more than one operator.
