Excuse me do you actually know what you are talking about.
I admit that I don't that much. But from the sound and like you write you sound non European.
I live in Germany. And as far as I can see we don't have that much better cell phones over here.
It used to be true a couple of years ago, but now I believe the same cell phones are available everywhere.
Could you tell me a single cell phone that is available over here, that is better thanthe iPhone and NOT available in the US?

How many countries do you think there are in Europe?
You know the EU only has 25 members, and with the German roll out, they also rolled out n the NEtherlands and Austria.
Its seems to me that the German deal might be the best deal yet though.
Without VAT the iPhone cost in Germany 481$ US.
but the contract only seems to require a 2 year contract with T-Mobile.
It does not state specific contracts this far.
So for me as a student that means I should be able to get a 7 EUR contract with 50 inclusive minutes to any network.
And thats pritty much all I need.
I just need to turn off Edge and I am fine :-)
Also something interesting might be if this iPhone might be unlocked, probaly not, but T-Mobile usually seels all their phones unlocked.
Well I hope more speicifcs will show up on the German T-Mobile website soon.
So far it doesn't state anythign at all about contractt. The German macworld wrote somethign about that T-Mobile users could use the t-hotspots but it doesn't say if that would be free.
And I would assume no, its not.
