Editorial Most of us here like gadgets. Things with displays, LEDs, or stuff that otherwise lights up in the dark and makes cool noises. There is this one gadget I had been waiting for to come out in The Netherlands for quite a while now, but at some point a limit was reached, and today I decided to do a complete 180 and buy a competing product.

Member since:

what I don't quite understand, why didn't you buy an O2 palm from Germany? They are not locked, you don't have to get into a contract the only thing is that O2 is the exclusive distributor. IMO getting a phone by paying upfront is almost always a better deal than getting it on contract.

No it's not. I have to pay my cell contract anyway, and phone or no phone, that's 30 EUR a month for 200min, 200txt msg, and unlimited data@2mbps. I get the iPhone for 99EUR with this contract. Without the iPhone, the contract would still be 30EUR a month - only now, you want me to pay 600 EUR for an unlocked Pre.

That's idiotic. On top of that - Germans use a QWERTZ keyboard, we use QWERTY.
