Unlocked Apple iPhone 5 now listed for sale on Apple's U.S. website
Apple says that if you don't want to wear the handcuffs associated with a two-year service contract, or you want to use a local carrier when out of the country, that you get the appropriate SIM card (nano for iPhone 5) and install it on the unlocked variant of the phone. The SIM card does not come with the unit.
Apple is limiting these online orders to two per person. If the thought of being tied up with a two-year contract makes you sweat and you plan on using one of the supported GSM networks, you can order an unlocked version of the Apple iPhone 5 by clicking on the sourcelink.

The Nexus 4 isn't looking so bad even if you have to wait, eh?

Nexus 4 looks great. Even greater when it comes to price. I think it's the most beautiful phone among Nexus line.

2 per person ... ? They should have made it 3 (or even1 to show that it's in higher demand than others) else it looks like copying from someone else who put such a restriction recently :D :D

I don't find the phone is worth the price.
