France Telecom's LiveBox Lab-- Mon Dieu! (FTE)

Jul. 5.06 | About: Orange (ORAN)

EuroTelcoblog (that's me) and Chaotica are on a secret mission across the Channel for a couple of days. How fitting that I'm happened to be here in Paris on the day that France Telecom (FTE) announced the LiveBox Lab.

One thing telco bears like myself have always bemoaned is the dearth of effort in the industry to embrace the concept of a developer ecosystem, but here's an exception to the rule. I'm also impressed and intrigued that this is apparently some joined up thinking between R&D and marketing. Mon dieu!
