No price is set on the 9300i, the plain old 9300 sells for US $300, it will be available in Q1 2006 for Europe and Asia. The Americas are supported because of it’s tri-band (900/1800/1900 MHz) antenna, but no release of the device here is planned. Cingular already carries the 9300, but with no WLAN support.
