I hope we will have more information in November.

Apple decides the launch of iPhone 4S in each country. We are in talks with Apple in order to speed up this decision. Let’s hope we will be able to launch the new phone in Romania before the end of the year,” Orange Romania CEO Jean-Francois Fallacher stated in Cluj-Napoca, Mediafax informs.
