    I've just watched the really long video on the Apple website and I'm impressed what the new iPhone will have to offer. Steve says that it will not be sold anywhere else in the world for over $199 for the 8gb model and $299 for the 16gb.

    1/ Do you think when it's released it will be selling like mad on eBay again?

    - If yes, how would the sellers possibly do this? I'm sure I've heard that if you're going into a store to buy the contract version (there is going to be a pay and go one as well) you have to sign up to the o2 contract via direct debit. So how would the eBay sellers do this? They're obviously not going to buy a few to sell on eBay then be stuck with contracts themselves!?

    2/ I've looked on the website and seen that there is going to be a pay as you go Apple iPhone version. Do you think this one, as well as the contract model will be unlockable?
