Bleedin' iPhone, freakin' Belgium!

That really pisses me off! Even bloody Turkey will soon get the iPhone (via Vodaphone) but no word at all about this freakin' country I live in. In Belgium they think they can teach Steve a lesson. You see, they made it illegal to sell phones linked exclusively to an operator. As far as I know, it's only the Benelux and the Nordic region that have been left without the little marvel. Even Switzerland was announced just a few hours ago. Almost all of Europe, with the exception of the few countries I mentioned above and a few miserable countries in the new Europe of the East (except for Czechs and Bulgarians who seem to be among the lucky ones), will soon get orgasmic pleasures by holding their iPhones.

WTF am I doing in this place? Other than its fast broadband and the 1000 different sorts of beer it's the last place you wanna be on earth... innit?

UPDATE: Apparently it was reported yesterday that in Belgium we shall be iPhone serv(ic)ed later this year by the Mobistar subsidiary of Orange. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
