Orange Austria joins T-Mobile in lower iPhone costs

updated 11:00 am EST, Mon February 9, 2009

Orange Aus. iPhone cuts

The Austrian division of Orange has dropped pricing on the iPhone 3G, new listings show. The 8GB model of the phone can now be bought for 1, though this must also be accompanied by a 35 general monthly subscription, and a 14 monthly iPhone pack. The latter bundles 3GB of data transfer and 100 SMS messages.

The price cut mirrors one at T-Mobile Austria, although there people must pay for a 45 subscription. T-Mobile was the first company in the world to drop iPhone pricing, and the Orange move may simply be a result of local competition; it is speculated, however, that it could be a herald of new iPhone models, given Apple's known strategy of forcing down prices in advance of some product introductions. Both the Orange and T-Mobile promotions are slated to end on February 14th, and a 16GB version of the original iPhone was introduced in February of last year.
