The iPhone is now available in Ireland and Austria, for the usual 399 (8GB) and 499 euros (16GB.) Yes, that's $778 for the same 16GB version that is manufactured in Asia for exactly the same price (in the US, a 16GB iPhone will cost you $519—tax included—in New York, a whopping $259 difference.) Apple Europe keeps milking European consumers with extremely abusive pricing, citing "marketing and importing costs." Whatever. European Union, it's time to bust this daylight robbery. And now I need a Guinness (hey, it's like black breakfast cereal). [TMobile and O2]
