paradoxsm: It's probably just speculation.
Remember the 8GB- $199 and 16GB- $299 in the US making it at worst $600 (50c in the dollar conversion)
If they release it at a scary $870 I will be giving it a big pass.
Yeah, its hard to say, really. But if it is that price, I will be leaving it too.
As a previous user said, could be for the iPhone outright, without strings.
However, if you "buy" it and get tied into a contract they should in theory keep the price of the "phone" cheaper than if you were to without a contract.
Its just a shame, everyone wants to know now, but Vodafone are being very coy about reviling ANYTHING. I think for everyone there are three major concerns, (IMO) The price of the phone, the price of the contract per month, and whats actually in the plan.
I'm just hoping they at least include SOME data to accommodate for the web etc.
But hey, this is Vodafone, be prepared to be disappointed.
I should really rephrase that last sentence, but I cant be stuffed. You should get what I mean :D
