    So, it has hit stores. Well, not really, but technically. It has, in São Paulo (there was even a line of 10 people at a mall, waiting for a store to open).

    It's being sold by Claro, in select stores, details are hazy but so far, their website has the following prices:

    8G - starting from US$1.079,95
    16GB - starting from US$1.242,03
    (exchange rate for today)

    Vivo (owned by Telefonica) is also selling it, prices range from US$485,68 (8GB) to US$1.188,00 (pre-paid 16GB) but the contracts are much more expensive. I actually thought they weren't selling it yet, there's a form on their website that you can fill out to receive news, but they clearly state it doesn't mean like a 'reservation', and it's all very vague.

    i've just read that they are selling it in stores, but there was no line.

    I would never pay that much for a phone, I don't care how cool it is.. The 300 that I paid for my iPhone is the most that I would probably spend. I can't imagine spending 4 times that!!

    Just curious how much the monthly charges are??

    there are at least 8 different contracts for each network (maybe more).
    they range from US$35 a month to... who knows?
    probably something like US$400 a month.

    edit: i just saw a headline saying "Brazil has Latin America's most expensive iphone".

    £350 = 1.191,78 Brazilian Reais
    so that seems about right
