Shipment date is still unknown, but on course for the year-end date predicted last October by Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
Where did they got Bad review for a product that is not out yet?
All the early tests i read where quite positive.
Now, that vodafone and 3G are going to be choosen make sense but i don't see that happening anytime soon. let alone on monday.
Cheer up US friends you gonna have your toys for yourself longer than that
bozigle sad european without iPhone (but i'll get my N95 next week)
This could be wishful thinking... but this makes sense. The UK Mobile phone networks are uch more developed (as i understand) and there is 3G coverage in most areas, even some more remote areas have good coverage. It therefore, to me, makes sense that the UK would get a 3G iPhone before the USA.
This is totally understandable as the UK is a much smaller, more densely populated country, making coverage much easier.
It is therefore totally reasonable the Apple will do a deal with Vodafone, or T-Mobile very soon.
I do however, doubt it will be monday, as that will be very bad PR for apple in the US
i really hope the iPhone is out in UK
but i have only just signed a new 12 month contract with a Nokia E61 with 3.
its got Slingbox and TomTom sat nav which is cool, and iPhone wont have.
I want the UK iPhone to be 3g with front facing camera and iChat AV
After a bit of further investigation, one UK online mobile retailer has posted details of the iPhone with a Vodafone contract, and they have now changed their website and taken this information off.
Were they told to do this by Vodafone & Apple, or maybe they just put this information up without any confirmation, who knows, here is a link to their website as it is now with the information removed phones2udirect
Before they changed their website I did manage to get a couple of screenshots which i have uploaded to my Flickr account, you can see them here if anyone is interested.
Steve Jobs was recently quoted explaining that the reason that the US iPhone didn't take advantage of 3G networks was due to size and battery considerations.Vodafone is currently in an ideal position to take on the iPhone, because its 3G network is hugely under-utilised. Pricing on mobile data is normally prohibitive, but Vodafone has recently revised its 3G data charges down, following "rip-off" complaints from users.
