Orange not the Exclusive Provider of the iPhone or the source of the leak

O2 is, Orange could get the iPhone next year.

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: Oct 1, 2009 11:46 am

Yesterday I wrote an article on the accidental leak of the HTC HD2 known to most of us as the Leo. In it I made the statement;

 

"It is also speculated that Orange might have dropped this little teaser to gain back some business they are going to lose now that they are no longer an exclusive provider of the iPhone"

 

An observant pair of readers caught this and reminded me that O2 is the exclusive provider of the iPhone until next year and that they are the ones that Leaked the information. While working on that article I was thinking about rumors that Orange was going have the iPhone as well and somehow combined the information.

 

What it should have said was; "It is also speculated that O2 might have dropped this little teaser to gain back some business they are going to lose now that they are no longer going to be the exclusive provider of the iPhone next year." O2 dropping the hint that the HD2 will be out long before the official announcement is probably nothing more than an accident on some very unfortunate marketing person's part.

 

Of course we may never know the real reason but, hey it is always fun to speculate.
