It finally made me stop wanting an iPhone. Really, really nice.
Available now unlocked or with a T-Mobile plan. But here's an important note: it is much better financially for you to buy the phone unlocked. Here's why:
- The $179 subsidized price requires an $80/month plan for two years - total cost: $1920
- The $529 unsubsidized price - an extra payment of $350 - allows you to get the exact same plan, but without any contract, for $60 a month. If you kept it for two years, total cost: $1440. You save $480, which recoups the $350 extra you paid for the phone, and gives you an extra $130.
And if you have Verizon service, it's coming there soon as well.
Update -- here are two good articles:
