Earlier today, the 8GB iPhone 3GS became available for purchase from the Apple Canada Online Store.
Just as reported earlier in the month, the iPhone 3GS (and the iPhone 4) will be unlocked when purchased at full price from the Apple Canada Online Store. The 8GB is a new capacity for the iPhone 3GS, previously featuring 16GB and 32GB. The 8GB capacity will also only come in black.
Your new iPhone. Direct from Apple and ready to use.
When you purchase your iPhone from the Apple Online Store, youâ€™ll get it commitment-free. So you can sign up for service with the carrier of your choice and change your carrier at any time.
At this time, it seems that the 8GB iPhone 3GS will not be available at Apple Retail Stores and instead, Apple Stores will continue to offer the 16GB/32GB iPhone 3GS in black and white locked to a Canadian carrier. This will likely change next month with the launch of the iPhone 4.
The 8GB iPhone 3GS has free shipping and a shipping time of 1 – 3 days after orders are placed through the Apple Canada Online Store. The device will ship with iOS4, will be unlocked (visit your local carrier or Apple Store for a SIM card), and is available for $549.00 (add your province tax rate).
