Orange comment on iPhone

Everyone is talking about Apple’s iPhone today and it would appear that Orange are no different. The following statement was released in reaction to the iPhone announcement:

“Today’s launch of Apple’s iPhone is another example of how the world of entertainment technology is converging. It reinforces our belief here at Orange that we shall see many more similar moves in the future. We have already seen our own Music Player service grow rapidly in the last year to average 100,000 single downloads per month, with over 500,000 tracks to choose from currently. Apple’s entry into the market will no doubt stimulate even further interest in mobile music services.”

“Europe is undergoing a digital revolution and Orange, Apple and other key companies are at the forefront of that. As the technology and entertainment industries merge over the next few years, consumers will be able to do things they previously only ever dreamt of and will be able to access all the services they need from a single provider”

I do find it quite amusing that Orange have (tried to) put themselves in the same bracket as Apple saying that they are at the forefront of this new technology. I’m sure that there are many out there that would disagree. Comments anyone?

Thanks to MSMobileNews for the Orange release heads up.
