Norwegian iPhone prices
Following an announcement for Sweden by parent company TeliaSonera, Norway's NetCom has revealed its prices for the iPhone 3G. Subscriptions are divided into three different levels of iTalk plans -- Small, Medium and Large -- and are roughly equivalent to the Swedish plans, providing steps of 100, 250 and 1,000 in voice minutes, SMS texts and megabytes of data transfer. These cost 399, 699 and 1,099 NOK per month, in order.
Phone prices scale inversely to the cost of the plan; while an 8GB model costs 1,390 NOK under a Small plan, it is only 690 NOK under Medium, and just 1 NOK with Large. These figures rise to 2,290, 1,590 and 890 NOK for a 16GB iPhone. All buyers will get free access to NetCom hotspots within Nordic countries, but outside the region normal rates will apply.
