Ars are claiming the unlocked version will be 100 more.

Like the UK and Germany, those plans still look expensive to me but are they in France?

You can't do that anyway with an iPhone or did I miss Apple adding a full iChat client on the phone, Acquisition and fixing their bluetooth profiles?

there is no sign/info about the unlocked iphone price, but yes you're right 1000, or 999 euros will be probably the street price.
in the same time three do propose a gsm with skype that allow you to chat to skype user for free and call skype users for free. and guess what ? no contract is required, a simple pay as you go is ok !

ok its not an apple product but its the first breach in the mobile phone provider business model.

naas, I typed 100, not 1000. That wasn't a typo. If you read the Ars article you'd have realised that.

Missed your "more"
seems to be too low as most french customer willbuy them without contract, i would say that 200 euros MORE would be close to orange price, but why not, i would be delighted is ARS is right !

In a radio interview the orange CEO Didier Lombard said:
'Le prix de l'iPhone nu en France sera "significativement" plus bas que celui en Allemagne (999 )"
price of the iphone without contract will be significantly" lower than the german price

he also said that American iphone will work with an orange sim card
so lets buy an American iphone a 270 euros, thanks to the exchange rate

to the question: does a SIP client or a SKYPE client will be available ?
than answer has been:
YES
finally a real Ichat will come soon ?
