New Unlocked Apple iPhone Price Tag: $964.00 + plane ticket to France
We already know the wholesale manufacturing cost for the Apple iPhone: $280.
We know the cost of the unlocked fully operational iPhone from T-mobile in Germany: $1483.
And now we know the “discount” unlocked iPhone cost from Orange in France: $964.00
And we’ll call it the “discount” price because it comes with some real usage limitations. . .
- forbidding the reading newsgroups
- no VoIP (voice over IP) calls allowed (don’t know if restriction is over cell network or wifi or both)
- sharing files over peer-to-peer services
- or using the iPhone as a modem with a notebook PC
- limit usage to around 1MB of data/hour
And oh yeah, don’t forget the trip to Paris to get your “discount” iPhone!
