Here’s good news for those who are eagerly waiting to get their hands on the unlocked iPhone 5. Apple has started to sell the unlocked version of the iPhone 5 in the U.S. in its online stores.

The unlocked device is already available in Canada and in Europe, but like always, Apple delayed the launch of the phone in the United States.

The pricing of the phone starts at $649 for 16GB, $749 for 32GB and $849 for the 64GB model. Apple will also begin selling the iPhone 5 at its retail stores in the coming days, or as soon as tomorrow. The device is available in large quantities at the Apple stores.

You’ll need a nano-SIM and there’s no support for CDMA. This unlocked device is great for frequent travelers, or for those who don’t want to limit themselves to one network provider. Note that the Cupertino based company is limiting sales to two phones per customer to avoid scalpers.
