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.

There is another factor which is the private offer.

At some point I was getting out of cycle iPhone offers from AT&T. They offered $15 for the latest version if I switched to a data plan. There was never an Android offer, it was always iPhone.

You can also get a good offer if you claim that Verizon/Tmobile is trying to court you. Those 50 and 100 dollar phone fees will disappear real fast, especially if you plan on getting more than the basic plan.
