    they wouldn't offer these phones at those prices unless they know someone will actually pay that, and someone will and the profit will completely justify their business.

    There are always people willing to pay almost any price for something they really want!

    Germanys economy is on the up after seeing growth over the last few months. Looks like they are trying to take advantage of it :)

    That's not "duty-free" pricing, it's more like theft.....

    When I was in Barcelona a couple weeks ago, the airport had a ferrari store and an electonics store selling gold plated iPhone 3GSs.

    1199 euros = 1601 Canadian dollars. That's over twice what an unlocked 32G iPhone 4 costs in Canada (not counting tax)!

    In Ireland its €599 for the 16GB version. This is sim free and tax paid. Crazy to pay €1200 for one when you can buy anywhere in Europe and have it shipped to your country.

    That's the normal price for an SIM-free iPhone 4 in Germany.

    Otherwise they are sold locked to the carrier (T-mobile).
