    I have just received a very weird article through on eMedia's Consumer Technology Bulletin. It suggests that O2 is just about to lose its exclusivity in the UK, and then links to a (London) Times article from October 2007 called "50 reasons not to buy an iPhone". This has either got to be the worst researched article ever, or they know something nobody else does. I'm going for the former...

    It would be interesting to field how Apple's Contract with O2 reads.

    "Hi, we'd like to drive traffic to our virtually unknown and hardly-visited website".

    If O2 does lose the contract to sell the iPhone exclusively and some other networks comes out with a decent PAYG plan I might actually buy one.

    What's ending soon is the exclusive distribution.
    From oct/nov on, every shop that sells Apple stuff could in theory sell iPhones but those iphones would only work with O2 or AT&T, or whatever carrier sells the iphone in each country.
