iPhone 4 coming to Optimus Portugal -- if you can afford it

Optimus, Orange's Portuguese brand, is getting set to release iPhone 4 but the price they want for a network-locked device will make it one of the most expensive places in the world to buy one:

  • iPhone 4 16Gb Black - 679,90€
  • iPhone 4 32Gb Black - 769,90€

That's a 70€ price bump for those keeping score at home. If you're in Portugal let us know if you plan to cough up that much cash, or if you have ideas for a cheaper way to get an iPhone 4.

[Optimus -- though the press release seems to be gone now. Thanks Carlos!]
