Russian carriers Vimpelcom, MegaFon, and MTS will begin selling the iPhone 3G in Russia on October 3. Available without a contract, the 8GB iPhone 3G will sell for 22,999 rubles (roughly $919), while the 16GB version will sell for 26,999 rubles (~$1,079). In addition to the carriers, electronics retailers Tekhnosila, Eldorado, and M.Video will also be selling the device, according to a Reuters report. “All retailers will begin sales of iPhone in Russia at the same time, during the night between October 2 and October 3. Our company will be also selling them,” said Nadezhda Senyuk, a PR director with Tekhnosila. Rival chain Eldorado estimated that sales of the iPhone in Russia will reach 150,000 before the end of 2008.
