The Kit and Caboodle packages will only be available until the 30th of June 2003.
The likely release date for the packages is 03-03-03, although Three only state that it will be in March.
The handsets aren't subsidised, and so are rather expensive. It's unlikely that you'll be able to get SIM-only deals immediately, and the 3ToGo deal is more like the Virgin OVP than a PAYG topup plan.
You can see the handsets here. They range from £399-£449.
The non-rental package seems a bit steep, I'd prefer £35/month for half the stuff included in B.
Hopefully a package like this will be out towards Q3/Q4 of this year.
