If you’ve been looking for an iPhone 4S without a contract, then you can now get this option in the USA as well. The Apple Store now offers the online option of purchasing the handset unlocked and off contract, just like the Cupertino giant promised back in November.

The device now costs $649 in the lowest version of storage or $849 in the priciest one that gives you a 64GB new iPhone. The phone works only on GSM networks, so tough luck for the people on Sprint and Verizon. Keep in mind that the rest of the world already has the handset in the unlocked version and they’ve had it since October, so the USA has been neglected.

We remind you that this is a dual core handset with an Apple A5 CPU, 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video capture, the same Retina Display as the iPhone 4 and iOS 5 as the OS. Siri is on board of course, as your virtual assistant ant personal secretary. The GPU on this phone also provides a brilliant gaming experience, so you may want this as a console replacement.
