NYC retailer claims iPhone pre-orders

NYC iPhone Pre-Orders

One New York City retailer is offering the iPhone for pre-order, a product page says. MobileCityOnline claims to be selling the 8GB version for $700 -- a $100 premium above the official $599 pricing. The 4GB version will carry a similar added cost, the store says. Unlike the recent Pure Mobile offering, however, the store so far declines to mention whether the device will be unlocked or how it will buy the phones, which are currently limited to official Apple and AT&T stores.

Availability is also called into question, as MobileCityOnline doesn't mention how soon after the June 29th release of the device it will have the iPhone in its warehouses. [via ZDNet]

    Why do they advertise the retail price as $800? Are they trying to make people buy it from them, paying a premium unknowingly?

    Isn't that false advertising, and can't they be penalized for that?
