MacVoices’ European Correspondent Don McAllister of ScreenCastsOnline covers the announcements related to the iPhone release in Europe. Don shares his reaction to the selection of O2 as the iPhone carrier, the fact that EDGE is also be the UK wireless network choice, and the pricing for the device and the usage plans. There is a surprising (from a U.S. perspective) lack of awareness of the iPhone, and Don talks about what needs to be done to build the anticipation in advance of the launch, the different way that UK cell phone users pay, and his upcoming adventures with iPhone unlocking.
