EU Carriers Bemoan Apple's Arrogance, Cry On Each Other's Shoulders

"Operators consistently told us, not for attribution, of course, that they had spoken to Apple and found the company 'unbelievably arrogant', making demands that 'simply cannot be justified no matter how hot the product is'," Avi Greengart, a principal analyst at Current Analysis, wrote in an advisory on Monday. "Several [operators] were adamant that they will never offer the iPhone."
