    Default Leading Russian Carriers Bail on Apple's iPhone


    Mother Russia has had enough of Apple's iPhone and the huge subsidies and marketing expenses that come with offering the touchscreen smartphone to consumers.

    Consequently, the top three carriers in Russia are parting ways with Apple's iPhone.

    There's not an iPhone to be had at any of the big three carriers' stores. Last week the last hold-out -- VimpleCom, which sells phones under the Beeline brand -- cut its ties with Apple and began offering its customers Samsung's Galaxy S4 instead.
    Although Russian consumers can still purchase iPhones from smaller entities inside of Russia, it remains to be seen how this turn of events will influence Apple's plans for a retail store in the dead center of Moscow's Red Square.

    With 180 million mobile subscribers in Russian, it's difficult to imagine that Apple isn't going to make an effort to win back these potentially long-term lucrative partnerships.

    That's still a sizable market.

    Apparently the droid forums are dead. The droid users are migrating to active forums.

    Check out the thread here - Widget-Weather
    To install the Widget-Weather app, just go to Cydia and install. This will also remove MyLocation, as it is built in!

    Since when is it not? Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Russia has territory in both Europe and Asia.
