Nope, unlocking is a lower level of detail than the processing power, operating system etc of the phone. There will be no difference in it's performance

In fact, once it's unlocked, I suggest you 'unbrand' it - rid it off Oranges branded firmware (OS) - that is assuming Orange's firmware IS branded - you know, themes, browser shortcuts etc... You can later add browser shortcuts to Orange's web portal manually. But debranding your N8 may actually improve performance, and if you ever want to sell the phone, it will fetch a better price if it is unbranded and unlocked.
