A deal between mobile phone operator Orange and Apple to bundle MacBooks with mobile broadband contracts has been reported as fact by mobiletoday.co.uk.
According to the report, discussions are at final stages between the two companies but there has been no official confirmation from either of them.
Initially the deal is expected to involve subsidized, but not free, MacBooks to be offered as part of long term contract using Orange's mobile broadband dongle, but reportedly Orange is hoping it will be a stepping stone to selling MacBooks and possibly netbooks with embedded Sim cards.
The report states that the deal will only be made available through Orange's direct channels.
If this deal does happen, presumably it would just be a matter of time until Orange at least joins, if not replaces O2, as an iPhone supplier.
