Re: The fandroid doth protest too much, methinks!

The success of the iPhone is in significant part due to Apple agreements with the US telecom carriers which inhibit competition and serve to keep end user prices high. To a monopolistic degree which would possibly not be legal in Europe. Kudos to Apple to talk these companies into a situation where Apple takes such a large share of the profits from telecoms but don't fool yourself its simply about products and users.
