So I’ve been with O2 here in Ireland for yonks and yonks [I even got a cool number from one of their techs when we did some work for Esat way back when] and I love my Sony Ericsson phone. Love it.

And I said loudly and clearly that I’m not going to be an early adopter of the iPhone – I want 3G, and I want all the other wrinkles well and truly ironed out, and I want pricing that doesn’t feel like I’m being violated before I get one.

But I do far prefer my Mac gear to my Windows gear …

And my understanding is that the iPhone is going to be pretty pricey here. Plus they’ve put some pretty small monthly limit on data. And the visual voicemail doesn’t work.

But I do far prefer my Mac gear to my Windows gear … So I’ll admit it – my lower lip was starting to wobble.

Then I saw this in my reader

So:

(a) No offense O2, but up yours for now.
(b) Thank you Pat. [His excellent press release is on his excellent blog here.]
