WWDC 2009 dates announced, Apple stores start selling contract free iPhone 3G


Apple has announced the dates for the World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2009. Its gonna happen on June 8-12 in San Francisco. Tickets are selling now for $1,295, which includes a $300 early bird discount when purchased before April 24.

What is interesting to note is that Apple stores have now started selling contract free iPhone 3Gs. And there is no restriction on the number of iPhones one can buy. This might be an indication that Apple is planning to release the next version of iPhone in the WWDC and wants to get rid of the existing iPhone 3G stock in the US.

The next version of the iPhone OS was announced a couple of days back and is bringing a lot of goodies for customers and developers. The next iteration of the iPhone might have a kick ass processor which will do justice to this new firmware.

    I wonder if these contract free iPhone 3Gs would be available in India as well, just as the iPhone 2G sneaked in illegally.

    Any clues on the price of contract-free iPhone in the US?

    Praval –

    Contract free iPhone 3Gs aren't available in India yet. However, the ones you buy from Airtel or Vodafone will work with your existing connection from these guys. That is, you do not have to get any iPhone specific voice plan.

    The price in the US is $599 for the 8GB version and $699 for the 16GB version.

    Thanks for replying Setu.

    I am pretty much aware of the fact. I was just curious to know if these contract-free iPhone 3G's have sneaked into the Indian grey market yet. I guess it'll take some time for India to have it's official, contract-free iPhone.

    The price however in the US itself is quite high today. I read about it on Ars technica/ Engadget a few days back.

    Btw, woikr is a good job done.

    Best wishes,
