Thumbs down to iPhone in Oz

The plans are simply unaffordable. We are being ripped off by the carriers. I was going to post about this, but a friend beat me to it with a better post on his blog.
As a fan of Apple (two Mac laptops and three iPods, including a Touch) I am very disappointed that I won’t be able to by an Apple iPhone to replace my VERY old Siemens ME45.
Here is the link to Paul’s post about iPhones in Oz.

    Despite not being an Apple fan I nearly got one. Being Gen X I want to keep up with Gen Y, even though I can’t really afford it. I decided against it because I don’t think the iPhone is that crash hot, the new Sony Ericsson Xperia is THAT much better. And not limited by Apple tech.You could buy one outright though, not a bad price for an 8gig phone.Wait a year, get an SE and be glad you didn’t get the iPhone.Plus, everyone is going to look slightly uncool when they pull out their conformist iPhone.

    Thanks, I had a look at the SE Xperia online, but it may not be out for a while and my old phone is nearly dead. I like the idea of a PDA phone and my sister likes her Palm Treo. I used to have some palm PDAs, but they eventually got hard to use for various technical reasons (poor screens, bad keyboards, etc.). Hopefully their technology has moved on since.
