Unlocked iPhone 5 prices leaked

$649


Cupertino has inadvertently let slip unlocked iPhone 5 pricing. Although most consumers tend to get their iPhone upgrade through carriers, unlocked phones are still a good choice for frequent travelers or just about anyone who does not want to be tied down with a two-year contract.

The entry level unlocked iPhone 5 is priced at $649, while the 64GB version is priced at $849. Pretty steep, in keeping with Apple tradition.

Comparisons with the Nexus 4 are inevitable, as Google’s latest vanilla Android phone sells for $299 and $349, although the latter is a fair match, as it has 16GB of storage like the cheapest iPhone 5.
