More Mysterious Boxes Arrive at Apple Stores, Pricing Leaks?
Photo not intended to represent the London box described in article.
More sealed boxes are reportedly arriving at Apple Stores worldwide with Arstechnica reporting that the London Regent Street Apple Store has received "a single box that is padlocked, and under orders to be put in a safe until Monday."
The image of the above box was sent in anonymously and correlates to the box that supposedly was sent to some Australian resellers. Web-mobile.net claims to have photos of the open box, but the authenticity remains up for debate. These images are provided for interest only and are not necessarily felt to represent authentic images.
We've also heard that Germany's T-Mobile has already received subsidized rate plans for the iPhone coming in at a subsidized 99, 199 and 299 euros. These are prices for hardware with a 2 year contract, but may only represent two distinct models, as the amount of subsidy depends on what rate plan is chosen. For comparison, T-Mobile Germany currently offers 4 prices (99, 149, 199, 249 euros) for the 8GB iPhone alone depending on the rate plan chosen. Meanwhile, the current 16GB iPhone (499 euro) has not been eligible for any discounts regardless of rate plan.
Finally, news is coming out of Spain that the new iPhone will be sold there starting at 99 euros by Corriere.it.
