Unbelievable but true, it seems that it becomes possible!

I see the imminent launch of the Iphone in Spain as a major new opportunity for the Internet sector.
Firstly I think we are going to notice much in the seasonality of the sector. Generally, the use of the network at the professional level has fallen drastically in a summer, I believe that with tools like the Iphone it's going to change much. 120,000 people signed up in the first 24 hrs to receive information from the launch of the new and improved 3G Iphone with Telefonica Moviles. I have confidence in the operator that the figure now exceeds 500,000 users who already have asked to be notified of the launch.
For such a device will emerge the effect that all those who wish to dedicate ourselves to the internet, it is very important that the navigation charges are reasonable. Of course it would be a more reasonable flat rate to 3 G speed without any limits, as is the case and is expected to happen in countries like Switzerland, Germany, France, USA and Japan, but of course here in Spain this will not happen At least input.
I read in telefonos.net what seems more than a rumor confirmed on charges that Telefonica Moviles, which has the exclusive going to offer to all users. First, 2 terminals with 8Gb and 16GB respectively at a high of 99 € 199 € and a forced stay of 24 months. The most interesting is the advancement of charges: a flat fee that ICANN would be unlimited and would cost 15 € per month, reducing the download speed of 200Mbs to pass, and another flat fee Iphone Plus by 25 € a month, where the speed of discharge would be reduced from 1Gb.
The presence of the Iphone will do much harm to competition from Movistar, especially Vodafone which had specialized in just a niche high average consumption, use of 3G services and a user of more quality than Movistar. Of the 500,000 stakeholders in the Iphone, many users are certainly other players who will go for no return.
The important thing is that if "place", as they say, 600.000-900.000 terminals in the next 12 months, can be a total revolution in mobile internet and arrived at last, now if the real beginning of the mobile Internet, beyond segments specialized use today and surf with his Blackberry. It might be time to the actual evolution of the Internet to mobile devices in the years we have been talking about. Yo, today HTC and BlackBerry user, ask mine.
Iphone comes, (we will see even in the soup.)
(By the way, it was time to come, because in this country if we go to a second speed.)
Forecasts of Telefonica Moviles in place between 800,000 and 1,000,000 of terminals and this should make happy, very happy, the boys of Telefonica Moviles in its battle with Vodafone in the domestic market, the guys from Apple in its battle to impose and distribute its hardware under its draconian conditions, but who is really happy and will not have to do the least in this release are the boys of the SGAE that after being approved for mobile will receive royalties for every phone sold directly to MP3 1 1 euros, while the MP3 and MP4 are loaded with 3.15 euros.
The account of old tells us that only the deployment of Apple / Telefonica Moviles will over the next few months SGAE between 2,800,000 and 3,150,000 Euros.
With those 500 million of the old pesetas, wrongfully collected, you can do many things. We'll see if the intended SGAE 100% of that amount-often-plum candies to give away one of its affiliates, or to recruit new lawyers to press briefcase in hand, trying to close mouths and threaten anyone who raises his voice against them.
