France, Sweden iPhone info

New details for the release of the iPhone 3G have been published in several European countries. French carrier Orange has announced that the 8GB model will cost 149 in tandem with an iPhone-specific contract and high-end options such as Origami, First and Jet. Under the same arrangement, a 16GB phone will cost 199. Owners of present 2.5G iPhones will be able to upgrade for 99 and 149, though only people who bought before June 12th will eligible, and the discount is through a 100 rebate and a renewed, two-year iPhone contract.

For Orange subscribers without an original iPhone, the device will cost 199 for 8GB, and 249 for 16GB. Combined with a 32 per month plan and an Origami package, subscribers will be guaranteed unlimited data.

Sweden's TeliaSonera, meanwhile, has revealed the divisions of its iPhone plans. Though no rates are mentioned, the plans are split into iMini, iMidi and iMaxi options. iMini gives users only 100MB of data use, along with 100 minutes of talk-time, and 100 SMS messages; iMidi jumps these to 250 each, while iMaxi pushes them to 1,000.

Lastly, Belgium's Mobistar says that while it does not have any specifics to share at the moment, these should be formally announced on July 4th.

    Misleading headline

    "France, Sweden, Belgium learn iPhone 3G details" it sais, and I am particularly interested in Belgium info. And the news is: "Lastly, Belgium's Mobistar says that while it does not have any specifics to share at the moment, these should be formally announced on July 4th."

    Dear MacNN editor, please share how someone could learn details when no details will be unveiled until July 4th?
