    If they give me one as a birthday present, you can have it as I sure won't use it.

    For a frustratingly short amount of time you can have the latest OS on an annoyingly expensive phone. Fix this on Oct 4 if you can.

    Bear in mind tgat the $999 US price quoted excludes Sales Tax because it varies state to state, while the £999 UK price includes VAT, @ 20%.

    There isn't price parity, but a lot of that quoted difference is due to our government, not Apple.

    And no, I'm not an Apple fan.
