Default Apple to Sell Unlocked GSM Only iPhone

"Apple Tuesday officially endorsed what hackers have already accomplished: selling an ‘unlocked' version of the iPhone 4. The Apple Store announced Tuesday it is offering a 16GB and 32GB unlocked iPhone 4 - a day earlier than expected."

Rumors were rampant about something happening this Wednesday, and it turns out it was the unlocked GSM only iPhone. The phone won't have a micro-SIM card so you need to supply one from any GSM carrier, and they will sell the 16GB version for $649.00 USD and the 32GB version for $749.00 USD. This will be perfect for those that don't want to be tied to multiyear contracts, or if you travel abroad and use local carriers. It adds one more niche market to the iPhone customer base, so while I'm not interested in something like this, I'm sure there are people that will be dropping the sizable sum to get one of these units. What are your thoughts, any interest in an unlocked iPhone?

TUAW has posted a FAQ on their site that should answer most, if not all, of your questions about unlocked phones.*
