How are they going to work this out?

The iPhone has te be able to be bought seperately from any provider due to laws in Belgium. Will it be more expensive? Like 400 euros? Thats 628.72 USD. Or even more?

Not in the slightest.

I'm surprised it's such a big deal for some folk. Perhaps they just like to whine and have a dig at Apple.

It has taken a dip this year to 42.52 million compared with 57.62 million in 2007 in the UK. Not insignificant. I'm not taking a dig really as I have an iPhone, it's just one feature I miss from my old phone.

If all you guys want MMS support. Download the SDK and write your own. Apparently its a piece of **** to write apps for the iPhone. :p

I'll add it to my list!

?130 for an iPhone with 3g? No way

Wonder If it'll be network exclusive, for ?130 I'd buy one for my T-Mobile contract.

Cara, it was so hectic in the IRC room that I don't think my question was worded properly. What I wanted to know was, you said you've been using the 3G iPhone, but not in its new body. I'm a bit confused there. So, the 3G technology, the GPS, etc. is possible to be fitted into the old body?

Also, when you did use the new body, how did the plastic feel to it? Does it feel high quality, almost as good as the aluminum? It just seems that Apple made a big deal last year about being "green" and using aluminum and glass, and then they throw it all away with a plastic body.

It'll remain an O2 exclusive here in the UK up until 2010.

worldwide price of $199 (Y)

So if its world wide $199 that would mean at the current exchange rate it should be ?100.89?

Unfortunately, I doubt it'll translate to that:((. I'd expect something around the ?140 mark.

Twice as fast is in reference to the connectivity, 3G. :)

It will be the equivalent of US dollars $199

not 199 in your currency cause that would be loosing big money. lol so just eliminate that right now from your mind. It's not economically feasible.

Depending on the area it wouldn't be losing money.

?199 is greater than $199.

?199 is greater than $199.

In areas where it's reversed, do $199 in local currency. Maximized profit.

$ 199 would be around ? 127,30 and that's an insane price. In Belgium the iPhones are being sold - imported - for prices around ? 400 at the mome:o. :o

What a crock!

Still no MMS. Still no video recording, still the same crap 2 mp camera and no video calling.

I think that Jobs is missing the point here, all the push/vpn etc connectivity the iphone is providing now is well and good but the vast and I mena 95% of buyers will be joe public and they'll still have to jailbreak to get back functionality that should have been there from the start.

Still it does look feckin minted and at a half decent price (as long as $199 translates to ?100 over here but I bet you its ?199)

Some of those features will be possible following the 2.0 firmware release in early July. That's when the iPhone will show it's real potential.

Will there be a WWDC summary topic containing price, release date, updates because - sorry - I can't be bothered to read through all 1000+ replies.
