With information about potential problems selling locked iPhones in France, it got me thinking about the choices Apple may make and what they might tell us about how they operate. Whatever happens with France will, I think, tell us a lot about how Apple "thinks" or rather what their philosophy is on the iPhone. Are they willing to ditch a market the size of France to keep their phones locked? If unlocked iPhones go on sale in France, unless they can somehow lock it to only France, they may have just set up a world wide distributorship for iPhones. So any big brains out there with knowledge of cell phone tech want to speculate on how Apple could simultaneously sell unlocked phones in France while keeping them locked in the rest of the world? I suppose if the hardware itself were different that might allow for it, but I'm just guessing there. Anyone have any specific insights on the tech involved that will shape these decisions?
