Apple finally confirmed that Orange would be the carrier for the iPhone in France. The iPhone will be sold on Orange's website and in Orange's retail stores for €399, which is around $566 American. Information on plans has not yet been determined or revealed. They did set an official date, however: November 29th. It is widely expected that the iPhone will retail for a higher price if sold without a contract as required by French law.

The Money Trail: iPhone Sales and AT&T Kickbacks Drive Profitable Fourth Quarter for Apple

Apple's fiscal fourth quarter ended in September, and the bean counters in every investment firm are hard at work following the money trail, speculating on Apple's quarterly results. Bear Stearn analyst Andrew Neff, the man most well known for his crazy but prophetic predictions about the implosion and consolidation of the PC industry, believes that iPhone could be the start of something big. He tells investors that while deferred profit sharing with AT&T won't have an immediate impact on Apple's bottom line, he sees iPhone being a money machine, driving profits. Doesn't it warm your heart to read those words?

According to sources quoted by BusinessWeek, who are close to the companies plans - sorry BW, the janitorial staff do not count as sources - Apple plans to deliver an SDK at MacWorld, finally opening the platform to software developers.

Mon Dieu! Invasion de l'iPhone! Orange Scores Exclusive Deal with Apple

Bonjour! My name is Jacques. On behalf of the people of France I would just like to say Merci to you Americans for exporting the Suprême iPhone. We French are quite accustomed to pinching and making gestures with our fingers, so the iPhone will be as second nature to us, oui? However, our country already has too many elitist assholes, so you may keep Steve Jobs. Just give us the iPhone and we can forget the unpaid loans you still owe us from the American Revolution. Did you swine think we had forgotten that our King Louis financed your war of independence, and allowed your con man, Benjamin Franklin, to rob our national treasury! Give us iPhone, and we give your freedom... and I don't mean fries, mon ami.

Apple Quietly Responding to Amazon MP3?

Apple has started putting 99¢ DRM-free tracks on sale in iTunes. Usually, DRM free tracks are only available as purchases from iTunes plus and cost $1.29. Assuming this trend continues, I'm glad to see Apple iTunes moving aggressively against Amazon MP3.

Apple iPhone Webapps are Live

Apple has created a searchable directory of mary various online web applications. The service is available at http://www.apple.com/webapps/, and offers over 200 (!) online applications. We had considered doing an online application database very early on, but we didn't. And it now makes me happy that we didn't, for very real. All of the iPhone application list sites are now competitors with a company with very deep pockets.

Apple Launches iPhone Web Apps Directory. Developers LOL

Apple has quietly posted a Safari web app directory, similar to the one for Dashboard Widgets, featuring every available iPhone-optimized web 2.0 service or web app created by human hands. Ok, so these aren't the apps we're looking for, and there are dozens if not hundreds of directory sites in existence already, but let it never be said we iPhone users are in want of a good web browser. Right? crickets chirping

[Update] Amazingly this directory isn't formatted for iPhone. Strange that Apple would build a web app directory for iPhone, designed to be accessed from a desktop.
