RUMOR: 3G iPhone to cost €100 in Spain, £100 in UK with O2 offering free iPhone 3G upgrade

“O2 is planning to hatch a series of attractive propositions to boost 3G iPhone sales in the UK,” Jonny Evans reports for Macworld UK.

“Macworld sources claim the device will cost £100 and be sold with an 18-month contract, but Apple’s UK network partner may harbour deeper plans for the launch of the device. Including free upgrades, free phones for high-tariff users and pay-as-you-go deals,” Evans reports.

In another related article, Evans reports, “Apple’s exclusive Spanish partner, Telefonica’s Movistar, will sell the 3G iPhone for under €100, local reports claim.”

“Local Spanish reports claim this news, saying the low cost will be made available to customers signing-up for a 24-36 month contract. The report also claims the device will have a video camera and GPS,” Evans reports.

“While speculation favours the introduction of the iPhone at WWDC next week, it’s widely believed the device won’t actually ship until the first anniversary of the iPhone’s US launch, 29 June,” Evans reports.

  1. Serious pressure building up from the ******* on our Steve to play the game, their game, their way. There will be lots more, there’s still a few days to go. Bet there’s some heavy duty FUD/pressure in the Sunday Papers.

    Stick to the price Steve, don’t subsidize it with crapware, advertising etc.

    Want something cheap, get a Nokia, or RIM or whatever, and a Toshiba Tablet, or PDA with a big screen. Get a roll of duck tape and stick them together. Fits easily in a back-pack and you can run all that fabulous Windows software too. Oops that not so cheap now.

    Lots of people have no concept of value, just of price.
