Orange unveiled its third-generation (3G) mobile phones in a long-delayed commercial
launch, with seven new handset models aimed at its key French market and at least four at
Britain in time for Christmas.
France Telecom unit Orange, which has spent more than 7 billion euros ($9.4 billion) on
licenses for high-speed 3G services in the UK and France, said it was targeting more than
10,000 3G customers in France by year-end and 1.5-2 million in Britain by 2007.
