  1. Not KPN please, it will be more expensive and with less service than any other…
    My bet still goes to T-Mobile or Vodafone, since these already run it in the neighboring countries.
    (it was their CEO initially saying ‘no, we don’t think the iPhone is such a great thing, but if Apple needs our help, we will do it’ – as in: we don’t have a clue what we’re talking about, but if there’s money to earn, we’ll do it).

    But: whoever will sell them: 2 for me please…

  2. It is an unfortunate fact of international life that every mobile phone service provider is loathed by at least 50% of its clientele. Let that disaffected block switch to another, and they’ll hate THAT company within a year. Critics’ careers (professional and amateur) are built on finding fault, and we’re ALL susceptible to the temptation to focus on the shortcomings of others.

    No matter which company Apple chooses in these negotiations, at least 50% of the affected customer base will absolutely hate them for it. More’s the pity.
