    Why vodaphone and not telstra?

  2. Dave Bullard says:

    I haven’t spoken to anyone behind the scenes, but what I think happened is: With international launches like this, some companies prefer to make one deal with one telco with a global reach. Vodafone has it; Telstra doesn’t. An example of this happening before was when 3G first came out and Disney signed an exclusive content deal with Vodafone, putting Telstra’s nose out of joint.
