Excellent, good to see us Brits are propping up the loss made in the US.
Rip-Off Britain is alive, well and living at Sony.

As someone who sold their original iPhone unlocked and for a profit on ebay, the £100 price-cut suddenly makes a re-buy an interesting proposition. At that price I can justify it as a 'Friday' phone and use my W890i (Fab) the rest of the time.
Let's face it, Apple/CW/O2 will probably slash the price of the 3G iPhone in 6 months so I may just bide my time until then. Then I'll unlock my re-bought iPhone and shove it on ebay.
I think there'll always be a market for good condition unlocked iPhones regardless of whether they are 3G or not.
Now, where's my nearest CW?
This will probably shock most of you but I am what you might describe as an Apple Fanboi. I had an iPhone and, I sold it.
The main issues for me were it's size, fragility and email problems from my AOL account over GPRS where it wouldnt let me send unless it was set to an 02 SMTP server - and then it wouldn't let me send via Wi-Fi.
At £35 per month this just wasn't good enough so I unlocked it and ebayed the life out of it to recoup some of my outlay.
I now have a W890i and it's fantastic, offers push email that just works and HSDPA - just a shame I'm still stuck with that contract.
Unless the 3G iPhone is something pretty special or half the size of the 2G one, i'll be sticking with my W890i.
