European iPhone could come to Vodafone, but with changes, sources suggest - Tech Digest
Rumours continue to circulate about who'll snag the iPhone in Europe. The latest to surface is that Vodafone will do a European deal with Apple, but not without challenging some of the iPhone's features first. According to "sources", executives at Vodafone aren't happy about how the iPhone implements YouTube. They would prefer it to operate more like the desktop web version. They'd also press for the iPhone to synchronise easily with Microsoft Exchange and Outlook — believing many European iPhone users will be high-end business customers — potentially requiring Apple to license the Microsoft Activesync technology to achieve this.
