Article: Apple Working with Universal SIM to Bypass Carriers in EU?
... I´ve seen the proposed legislation for this to happen. Similar to what Microsoft was condemned to pay out in the hundreds of million €....although not the same, this pretense violates one of the basic monopoly safeguards of all EU citizens...
What Apple wants is what, basically, the US gives...
In Europe it´s not the same. To compound the problem EU is 27 countries with 27 independent constitutions.
What´s good for the goose, in this case, might not be good for the gander.

So if I buy one of these fanatic devices, I wont be able to switch to another phone? That was one of the best things about having a GSM phone. This is just another reason for me not to buy this. Sigh.
Mr. Jobs why must you want to control everything?
