As i know how things work in israel, its pitty to say that this might sound good and might bring hopes to many people...this will evelove to become a part dream part reality. it just takes too long for things to ariive in israel, and it comes to certain levels where people just go and buy abroad. no wonder so many "unofficial" sellers are out there in israel, who just travel to europe/asia and buy a small stock to sell. :roll:
also the prices in israel are just way too high, i know that the SPV E100 is about to be sold for about 4000 nis (new israeli shekels) which is somewhere around 600 GBP...its cheaper to buy a ticket to the UK from israel, buy the phone there and still be left with some change. 8O

ohh well...
