Apple "European Union regulators are examining the contracts Apple strikes with cellphone carriers that sell its iPhone for possible antitrust violations after several carriers complained that the deals throttled competition." Well paint me red and call me a girl scout.

Assuming that such availability exists in the EU I can't work out why there is this push for anti-trust against Apple when in reality it is badly run carriers whining with dumb customers too lazy to actually shop around for the best deal - yes, you can buy phones from retail stores and choose your carrier.


Because the carriers have to pay Apple twice as much as they pay for competing phones. The carriers effectively lose $300-500 per Apple phone sold.
