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.

Seperate is a lot cheaper in Belgium

In Belgium you clearly haven't done the maths when you choose to pay your (smart)phone with your contract. I have seen contracts where you easily pay triple the price compared to the same contract and phone seperately.

We are lucky that all phones (as far as I know) that are sold here are simlock free, so you can easily choose another phone or sell your phone to someone else.

I think that all people I know have bought their phone seperate from their contract and that is also true for the more expensive smartphones.
