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.

I'm not sure if they still do but they used to offer subsidy less plans. The problem was that it was more expensive to buy phones with no subsidy and subscribe to the plan, then it was to buy the subsided phone and the higher per month plan over the life of the contract.

Right now I'm kind of off contract, I will end up buying a new subsided phone just so the phone company isn't make more money than they should off of me.
