Jonny Evans reports for Macworld UK, “Jobs’ presence in the UK could be on account of meetings with the mobile phone networks here.”

“In the UK, O2 was most recently reported to be the front-running candidate for distributing the product in this country, with former front-runner Vodafone reportedly abandoning such plans because it was unhappy with the revenue sharing deal demanded by Apple,” Evans reports. “T-Mobile and Orange have also been named as potential carriers in recent reports.”

  1. Sure… speculate about every/large mobile phone company and you’ll cover the basis! They forgot to mention 3, Virgin, and BT!!! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

  2. He is probably there for Al Gore’s “Earth in a Lurch” concert.

    Jobs should get his ass home and get a fix for low-volume receiver, speaker, and ringer problems on iPhones. Numerous complaints on Apple discussion forums.

    Fix the problem!!!

  4. It has been my experience over the past 3 score years that if one listens seriously to the hysterical rantings and ravings of discussion board frequenters (as valid as SOME of their concerns might be), he or she will never buy anything, anything at all.

    The lunatic fringe on Apple’s MacBook Pro forum had me believing that each and every one of those marvelous machines was an anti-personnel device just waiting to go off. I finally realized that many (most?) of the grousers there had nothing better to do with their lives than to find fault with every little inadequacy around them.

    “It’s too hot in here! It’s too cold in here! It’s too . . . in-between in here!”

    My new 17″ MBP arrived last week, and it has been performing flawlessly around the clock ever since. Truth is, most people’s problems lie not in their stars, but in themselves–which leads to the inevitable conclusion, I think, that most publicly-posted opinions are worthless.

    Including this one.
