    I think there has to be something else big if he just came out with that right away...
    There's really no reason to hold this "event" if it goes by like that...

    Hmmmm, bit of a rip off considering you're paying out right for the handset. Also wonder about the details of their "unlimited" data.

    Naturally I still want one of course :p bastards.

    What is the big deal about no 3G? Is 3G faster then Edge?

    What speeds do Edge give?

    Good for you. Here however the carrier (o2) usually subsidise the cost of the handset, then you basically are paying for the handset a little each month as part of your plan.

    Now they want us to pay for the handset in it's entirety up front, and pay expensive tariffs.

    It's not the end of the world, and they will still sell, but it is a bloody cheek.

    The carrier usually subsidizes the phone here too.

    Which is exactly why I'm not going to buy one. No 3G, v1... limited capacity, bound to have price reductions and price improvements. I'll stick with my current phone for another year or two until things get a bit more reasonable. Looking to cut my tariff anyway from £40 pcm.

    Being a first adopter is a mug's game. In my most humblest of opinions, of course. ;)
