An American, living in Finland, writing Canadian news. I apologize in advance to our boys living in America’s hat, but this story is too big to pass up. That and they’re asleep dreaming about whatever Canadians dream about … maple syrup?
Anyway, Apple’s iPhone is going on sale this Friday in Canada, and it’s going to be available unlocked for the modest sum of $659 Canadian Dollars ($638 USD or 490 EUR) for the 16 GB model, and $779 Canadian Dollars ($754 USD or 580 EUR) for the larger 32 GB variant. That’s a bloody steal if you ask me compared to what we pay here in Europe.
Apple is also selling the older iPhone 3GS, the 8 GB model, for $549 Canadian Dollars ($530 USD or 408 EUR) while supplies last.
We’ve seen this unlocked sales tactic done in the UK as well, so I’ve got to ask, what about other countries?
