The restricted iPhone

Apart from the lack of 3g, the dire amount of storage and the lack of video, and the lock in to iTunes:

Apple is understood to be demanding that its European mobile phone partners hand over a significant proportion of revenues generated by the iPhone and restrict the content that users can access. [My emphasis added]

From: Vodafone put off by Apple’s demand for big iPhone slice.

Now, 3 tried this and look how successful they have been. Look, Apple / whoever the hell gets the bloody exclusive contract: give me access to what I damn well like or I’ll never ever buy your overpriced bit of hype.

Exclusive contracts are crap for the consumer anyway so I’m certainly not going to be moving from my current provider just to get it, even if I were sad enough to want it more than anything else in the whole world.
