On the side note, Orange will be offering iphones in the UK and O2’s previous exclusive deal with Apple will end soon according to BBC News (which I don’t read much but for all you bloody readers out there…):
The deal ends an exclusive arrangement between UK network operator O2 and the Californian phone maker, which has been in place since 2007.
