Amazon UK lists iPhone
Amazon's British online store has preempted official announcements of the iPhone by listing the device through its online store. Both 4GB and 8GB models have appeared on the company's UK website, giving local users the opportunity to sign up for notification about its release. The site also points to a December 1st release date for the device that fits into Apple's predictions of a late 2007 European launch, but may be speculation and has not been confirmed by the iPhone's creator.
Prices for either of the devices are unlisted as of Friday afternoon but were partly exposed earlier in the day, according to sources. The 8GB version has been listed at £329 ($662) that may include the country's VAT tax, suggesting a relatively small premium for the device compared to the official $600 price. The cost of the 4GB edition, as well as the carrier plan associated with the device, is currently unavailable.
