The Middle East iPhone build up continues, with the news that French telecom operator Orange will sell the device in Jordan and Egypt.

In a statement released on Friday, Orange announced that it will be selling iPhone in these two countries "later this year". Orange will also sell iPhone in its African markets, which include Kenya, Niger, Senegal and Ivory Coast.

UK operator Vodafone has already announced that it is planning to introduce iPhone in Egypt. Apple has stuck to exclusive deals for each country where it introduced the iPhone originally, but it has now signed deals with multiple operators for several markets.

The new non-exclusive iPhone deals are expected to relate to sales of a new anticipated 3G iPhone model. The ‘current' 2G model is no longer available in the US and the UK.
