Report: Italy Getting Unlocked 3G iPhone

Telecom Italia mobile is rumored to be getting the 3G iPhone “in a matter of weeks,” according to an Apple Insider post. The really intriguing part of the deal is the talk that Apple might let the Italian cellco sell the iPhone unlocked and without a contract.

According to the article, which cites a report in Italian newspaper Repubblica, Telecom Italia will reportedly have a few months as the exclusive retailer of the 3G iPhone and be able to sell the new device without a contract or other restrictions, but at a higher price, of course.
