The iPhone and Europe.....T-mobile VS Vodafone

Who will get to carry the iPhone torch in Europe ?
One report from Macworld says it's definitely going to be T-mobile......

Europe's mobile networks are battling for rights to distribute the iPhone here – and now it seems T-Mobile may lead the pack.

Contrary to previous reports which have claimed Vodafone or (possibly) Orange as most likely to seal the European distribution deal for Apple's future mobile device, it now seems T-Mobile is going to take the prize.

.....But another on from 'InformationWeek' speculates it might be Vodafone.
Well, for starters, T-Mobile isn't the largest carrier in Europe. With some 200 million subscribers worldwide, Vodafone ranks as number one. Spain's Telefonica holds the number two spot. T-Mobile, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, ranks third overall (and sixth in Europe) with 101 million subscribers. Vodafone was considered to be the leader in the race to secure the iPhone for European markets due to its size alone. T-Mobile, which has half the number of overall subscribers, would limit the potential distribution of the device compared to other options.

Well, I'm sure the Europeans just want want the damn phone to reach their shores.
