Boygenius, the ever rumouring website who brought us such ponderings as the 99 dollar iPhone are churning out some new butter. Apparently, they have received information that AT&T will be clearing iPhone inventory and to do so, will offer no-commitment iPhones. The 8GB phone will go for a measely 599$ while the larger 16GB phone will be available for 699$. In addition to being free from a money-grubbing AT&T contract, it will not require activation but rather necessitate the purchaser to already be an AT&T customer.
What this means is that you can now woo that special someone with the purchase of an iPhone. Call it bride price if you will, but AT&T have only limited ways of ensuring sales go to prior AT&T customers so this ain’t no shotgun weddin’.
UPDATE: Next Thursday, the no commitment iPhone will go on sale at price points of 599$ and 699$ for the 8GB and 16GB respectively. Thanks for the update Yahoo! Finance. The down part? Those of you not on AT&T will either have to saw off your foot and pay contract ending fees or otherwise just pony up to AT&T for a contract. Well, at least you can get an iPhone without a contract… and then have to pay contract to use it… yay for freemarket economies!
