Once an update is released for it and we have root access (assuming that the vulnerability in the droid works for this as well) we will have roms of the European version with multi-touch enabled in no time.

So Europeans can pick any phone they want, any plan they want from any carrier, and now, nail in the coffin, multi-touch on a phone that is exactly the same as the one sold here? America's cell-phone market sucks...

Hes German, he probably hacked his way trough the os and enabled the function. Too bad he had one too many Warsteiner to remember.

We cannot pick any phone we want on any plan from any carrier. iPhone is locked to O2, Blackberry storm is locked to Vodafone (along with most of the other BBs), Pre is o2, HTC Hero is locked to Meteor, etc. Granted our plans are a little better but still not stellar.

[citation][nom]the_bloodlust[/nom]in france it mostly open for all phone[/citation]

Yeah, French law dictates that you can't sell goods dependent on a service. Eg, you can't force someone to buy butter if they want a loaf of bread. Smart people!

Mattfoo, it's partly the customers fault. Nokia tried to sell their own phones unlocked in US but were forced to shut down that business because nobody there wanted to buy unlocked phones for full price. I think it's because, for some reason, Americans perceive for example 179 USD + 79 per month in two years to be cheaper than 529 USD + any plan you want. In reality it's always a lot cheaper to buy a phone unlocked in the long run. Here in Sweden we usually can buy either a unlocked phone or a subsidized one with a plan. I always buy them unlocked.
