Across the pond, the new iPhone 3G S has kept the previous iPhone 3G price points of $199 and $299. The old 3G has been reduced to $99 as a budget option. This is what Apple has traditionally done with new products.
But in the UK, according to new O2 pricing, the iPhone 3G 8GB has remained the same price, while the two new 3G S models are even more expensive. If you want an 18-month contract at £35 per month, it will cost you £184.98 for the 16GB, or a whopping £273.23 for the 32GB, on top of the contract price.
If you want a contract free iPhone 3G S, it’s £440 for the 16GB, and £538 for the 32GB. That’s over double the cost of the equivalent iPod Touch.
I thought we were rid of Rip-off Britain.
