What we are not seeing often is the reverse process, but here we go - the Czech subsidiary of Telefonica has decided not to offer Apple's iPhone 4S, and drop any other iPhone from its portfolio, for that matter. A spokesperson has cited Apple's business terms to be the main culprit for that decision.
Now we know that carriers are usually sponsoring Apple north of $400 apiece for the privilege to sell the iPhone 4S, but these have always been the terms, although high-end Android phones often command smaller premiums. Still, the iPhone has always been more expensive in Europe and the Czechs might have decided they can't recuperate such a subsidy. Other carriers in the country, like Vodafone, are still offering the iPhone variants.
