The release concludes with this statement:

With 42 million shopping visitors a week into Tesco stores, and great value price plans on offer, the network expects consumer demand to be extremely high.

Is this then the cheapest way to buy a top of the line 32GB 3GS iPhone in the UK. Walk into a Tesco that has one, smack £538 for the phone and £10 for the basic pay as you go top up on the desk and walk out. Would I dare to dream that the phone would be unlocked?

On the other hand, maybe not… After a bit of digging I find that Tesco uses O2… And I can't even browse the O2 store as it detects that I am not in the UK…
