According to foreign media, Apple's unlocked iPhone with 3G function is being sold in the company's online retail store in Hong Kong.
At present, the Hong Kong Apple website is selling the 3G iPhones with capacities of 8 gigabytes and 16 gigabytes. The advertisement on the website says that all the handsets for sale are compatible with any mobile operator. Users only need to insert a SIM card into the 3G iPhone and activate it by connecting it with iTunes 8.
Apple doesn't explain why they sell the unlocked iPhones in Hong Kong and also doesn't claim whether it will provide the unlocked mobile phones in other markets.
Previously 3G iPhones were sold in July in Hong Kong by Hutchison Telecommunications on the condition that the user signed a two-year agreement.
So far, Apple is not selling 3G iPhones from its online shops in the United States, Britain, or Singapore.
