Apple Mistakenly Leaks Unlocked iPhone 5 U.S. Prices

Apple's website has mistakenly leaked the prices for unlocked versions of the iPhone 5.

While a search on Apple's site for the term "iPhone 5 factory unlocked" doesn't display any results, the page's sidebar depicts results for the iPhone 5's unlocked prices.

The prices range from $649 and $849, which is dependent on the amount of memory space. Apple's page also lists both the GSM and CDMA and the white and black versions of the smartphone.

Although the iPhone 5's unlocked versions are already sold in other countries, Apple usually releases the unlocked version in the United States a while after the handset launches with its various carrier partners.

However, with Apple's supply issues, it's unclear when it'll start to sell the smartphone's unlocked variants.

    Why would you get this when you could get an unlocked nexus 4 for $350 16gb (300 for 8gb)?
    Plus the nexus 4 has one of the strongest CPU/GPU combo

    Because it has an apple logo on it, specs and price don't mean anything to apple consumers. They get fooled by words like 'thinnovation' and 'resolutionary'

    Using logic and fact to explain Apple fanboyism is redundant.

    Not really surprising. I don't think the pricing has changed over the years.
