PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I always see The Netherlands - my home country - as a small, easily graspable version of other, larger and more important western countries and even the west as a whole. In light of this, Tweakers.net's Arnoud Wokke points to a very interesting report about the Dutch telecommunications market. This reports notes a trend that, if present in the rest of the world, could have serious effects for phone makers.

Well, Thom, here in Brazil it's the exact opposite situation. We've always paid for our phones, since subsides were pretty low and phone charges were high. But now, we're leaning heavily towards carriers/manufacters tie-in, and it's a pretty big market, so i don't think it's a worldwide trend.
