What Does That iPhone Cost?

One of my co-workers at Nokia forwarded me the page on Voadfone Italy, where they will be selling the iPhone unlocked, or at least unsubsidized.

To convert that into U.S. dollars (using today’s exchange rates anyway): the 8gb iPhone is $772, the 16gb iPhone is $880!

It does make me wonder, though, how much the price of the phone really went up and just how much AT&T and the other carriers will be pocketing on the deal. At least in the U.S., the price is going up at least $40, thanks to AT&T charging all iPhone users an extra $10 a month for data sevice over a (required) two year contract.
