£100 off

Carphone Warehouse and O2 have announced that they will each knock £100 off the price of Apple's 8GB iPhone tomorrow, as predicted earlier today.

Already own an iPhone? If you bought it from CW in the last 30 days, the company will give you £100 worth of gift vouchers, it said.

There's no comparable offer from O2, which also said the special price will be in force only until 1 June. The carrier also said the offer was subject to "stock availability".

From tomorrow, both firms will sell the iPhone for £169. However, the 16GB handset remains set at £329.

It's not clear whether Apple will also cut the price of the handset tomorrow, or whether the deal is simply a matter of O2 and CW subsidising the sale price to boost demand.

Contracts start at £35 a month for 600 minutes, 500 texts and unlimited internet access during that period.
