ベルギーのiPhone発売遅れる

hardmaxc:Belgium: le launch of the iPhone delayed

Source : Lecho.be

ベルギーでは,7/11にiPhoneが発売になる予定だったが,
Mobistar社(キャリアの一つ)が会見を中止し,この端末の発売が遅れる事を通達してきた.
この問題はベルギーの法律にある.
デバイスを販売するときに,排他的な契約をセットにする事が禁止されているのだ.
正確な発売日はまだ発表されていないので,
一年間待っていた人や,既に並んでいる人を失望させそうだ.

Whereas the iPhone was to be launched on July 11 in Belgium, Mobistar cancelled its press conference and pushed back to a latter date the marketing of the device.
The problem comes from the Belgian laws prohibiting the binding of the sale of a device to a subscription, which makes the concept of exclusiveness very difficult to set up.
No date has been given for a new launch, which is likely to strongly disappoint the Belgians who have waited for now a year and who had the range in hand.
