i think people here in spain will prefer no exclusivity but if it’s only 3 or 4 months that will be ok. More competiton better prices.

I think those of us, here in Spain, who wanted an iphone already have one.
Too late for Telefonica (as usual), I think they don’t know that things like ebay and people traveling to USA exist.
