The iPhone Invades Europe
The iPhone is finally being released in Europe. There is a bit of scepticism about whether or not it will be as successful in the European market as it has been in the American market. Currently in Europe most phones are sold at a subsidized cost. The Europeans also have a higher expectancy for the data speeds and camera technologies in their cellular phones. However, the iPhone is going to make an attempt in the European market, even with its lower capabilities and much higher price. The hope is that the new touch screen and easy navigation will catch the attention of the people in Europe. The demand in the United States has been very high for the phone, despite the fact that many users have had to terminate their current carrier to sign up with AT&T. It will be interesting to see if the Europeans have the same draw to the iPhone as the Americans.
