The etailer Omio has put the cat among the O2 pigeons by pasting on its blog that it's received information from a, "very, very credible source," that the iPhone will be turning Orange sometime soon - and possibly by October.
It muses that poor sales of the original iPhone caused Apple to rethink its deal with O2, placing a time limit on its exclusivity for the 3G release.
There's been absolutely nothing official from O2, Orange or Apple on this but we await October with interest.
