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.

For what it's worth, one thing that carriers here (in the US) sometimes do is tie the subsidized phone upgrades to forced plan "upgrades" (to capped, more expensive data). So, it can be beneficial to buy the phone from a third-party (harder for CDMA phones, but possible) at full price, then activate it (for CDMA) or insert the SIM.
