One of the reasons might be:

It's not just that maps aren't there, they don't seem to really care about the 
european market either. With a bit of effort they could be selling those with 
map data from all kinds of suppliers, or at least with support for the data 
formats of popular european maps. Frankly, it seems to be more about selling 
the service plan anyway. 

I'd rather wait for the device thats able to make phone calls as well...


It's easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
