The 8GB iPhone is being sold for €100 less around O2 stores in Ireland today as part of a promotional campaign which runs until 25 May.

An O2 Ireland spokesperson, talking to siliconrepublic.com, said: “O2 Ireland can confirm that it will be offering the 8GB iPhone at a reduced rate of €299 from today, Friday 9 May until Sunday 25 May.

“The special offer is designed to create additional momentum for the device beyond what has been a very successful launch period and to expand its reach by making it available to an even greater number of customers for a limited time.”

When asked if this offer was preceding the arrival of a 3G iPhone, the spokesperson for O2 Ireland said: “That’s one for Apple to announce when it is ready.”

In the meantime, sources close to Apple say the Cupertino-based company will be releasing the 3G handset next month in June.
