News is starting to trickle in.  You can now officially buy an unlocked iPhone for yes, €999.  Is this the actual price of the iPhone.  Is this what Apple would charge if it wasn’t taking $10-$20 bucks a month of your Mobile bill?  Perhaps it isn’t that easy to build an operationg system from the ground up for a phone that works as well as the iPhones?

I guess we know what price those unlocked iPhones are going to go for in France.  The question is, are they different from a hardware perspective?  Or can people who want carrier choice just buy a $399 iPhone at the Apple store and upload the new unlocked firmware?

Also, according to fortnighttv, tmobile users that have already purchased the iPhone can have theirs unlocked for free.

We’ll bring you more reports as they develop…
