Interesting if that is the case, as Vodafone ARE the largest carriers in europe thus far (I'd like to be wrong on that fact, but from what I've seen that is the case).

Australia could follow the same trend perhaps?

By customers, Vodafone are the largest company in Europe. But they've got a bit to go until they catch up to China Mobile, the world's largest.

Be nice if Vodafone were the carriers here, doubt it though, Telstra or Optus would be the best carriers (per Apple's needs)...

I got my money on Vodafone and Three (for australia), Telstra shot themselves in the foot with those idiotic comments. Optus could possibly join the parade too since they sold the ROKR prepaid

Considering that both Vodafone and Three are going after roughly the same demographic as Apple is, it would make some sense for either of them to offer iPhone.

I sincerely hope that th likes of Vodafone and Three get a look in. Like other comments above, I think Telstra may have blown it. However, my opinion is just that - opinion - based on no real understanding of the matter.

(So why comment, I hear you say???) :D

Vodafone would be great, they have a government contract - Im a government worker with a vodafone mobile, if vodafone gets the iphone the office gets one for me

I hope its vodafone over three, as there is no three coverage here.

I have very little Three coverage in THE MELBOURNE CBD. Three service = sucks.
