On Wednesday, we reported that the iPhone will no longer be available just for Orange subscribers in France following a decision by the national competition council.

At the time we published that article, Apple hadn’t yet responded to the news. However, in an e-mail, company spokesman Alan Hely said that Apple is deeply disappointed by the council’s decision. The iPhone, he said, has created “vigorous competition among handset makers and carriers that benefits all consumers. Our partnership with Orange has enabled us to deliver unprecedented value to French consumers.”
