An internal AT&T memo leaked to MacDailyNews crows that "iLaunch day 2009" - yes, you read that correctly, "iLaunch" - set multiple Big Phone sales records. Here's the pertinent portion of the self-congratulatory missive: iLaunch day 2009 was one for the record books, as AT&T customers scrambled to get their hands on the …
"The first item of business was that ex-King of Pop Michael Jackson's"
Damn you for stealing my lines :P Ex-king of Pop.....finally someone else who thinks the same way I do about this one

I think the EU need to look into these "exclusive" deals; the "networks" should be separated from "Retail". i.e. you chose the best network supplier (best coverage, best rates etc.) and the best retailer for phones where you pay the full price - the networks give you a rebate if you sign up for a lengthy contract etc.
