iPhone 3G -- What's it gonna cost you?
It's just a few days until we get our hands on the new 3G iPhone and now we have some idea of the pricing from AT&T.
Just how much will AT&T gouge their customers already under contract but who are not eligible for an upgrade yet? On their website, AT&T reveals that customers not eligible for an upgrade will have to pay $399 for an 8GB iPhone 3G and $499 for the 16GB version. (Also, AT&T has announced that they will offer no-contract-required iPhones in the future at $599 and $699 price points.)
And if you are going to go stand in line, keep in mind that Apple is limiting sales of the iPhone, just like last time, however, they will let you purchase up to two, rather than the one per person limit from AT&T. Strange, but maybe Apple is figuring you might pick up some other Apple goodies while you're hanging out in line?
