Apple is selling the iPhone 3G SIM-unlocked in the Hong Kong Online Apple Store. The 8GB and 16GB iPhone 3G models are sold for HK$5,400 ($695, 2610 SR) and HK$6,200 ($795, 2982 SR), respectively, with free shipping.
“Customer response to the iPhone 3G has been off the charts, and we are thrilled to offer our customers in Hong Kong another way to get their hands on this revolutionary device,” an Apple spokeswoman said in an email response to questions.
I am sure that most of those unlocked iPhone 3G are being exported to the gray market in countries without an iPhone deal (like Saudi Arabia). iTechia and other stores are already selling iPhone 3G in Saudi Arabia for over 4500 SR ($1200) for the 8GB model.
