You can snap up the iPhone-botherer, which sports the slick WebOS and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, from O2's high street shops and its online store on contract deals.  

Tarriffs start at just under £30 if you're willing to pay nearly £100 for the handset and sign up for an 18-month contract. Free handsets are available from £35 per month with a two-year tie-in.

All Pre tariffs come with unlimited Wi-Fi and data (though pesky fair usage applies). The Pre isn't yet available on PAYG.
