Unlocked iPhones available in the US–FINALLY!

This is indeed great news: Apple is now going to sell unlocked iPhones in the US! This greatly simplifies my life in that now I don’t have to figure out how to travel to the UK or Canada to buy one. Having to buy a locked phone and commit myself to an expensive, multi-year contract for thousands of minutes of call time I’ll never use was ridiculous (and should be illegal, frankly). Now I can pay more up front, but spend a lot less in the long run.

Of course, I don’t happen to have $749.00 lying around at the moment. And then I’ll probably want to wait for the iPhone 5 now anyway (and hope it will be sold unlocked). Sigh…
