O2 tells Apple fans to talk to the hand

No Safari to iPhone land

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Updated O2, who hold the UK exclusive on the iPhone, provides a useful online ordering tool for those looking to get the latest Apple hardware - as long as you're not using Apple's Safari browser.

Everyone else is most welcome: Firefox, Internet Explorer and even Opera Mobile can all connect and apply for a long-term contract. But poor sadsack Safari users are simply told that their browser won't support the appropriate "portlet":

O2 Error Screen

Let that be a lesson to you, stop thinking different!

Perhaps O2 feels that anyone who's used Safari wouldn't want to risk buying an iPhone, so perhaps O2 is just pre-empting that decision.

Thanks to Francis Madeira for the tip. ®

Update: O2 has been on the blower to tell us that despite the fact that we observed the problem for more than half an hour it was, apparently, a "small window of maintenance" and everything is tickety boo now.
