i’m waiting patiently for the price of this thing to get lower. so, nearly four months since it was launched in the philippines, it is now $100.00 cheaper – if purchased as a prepaid kit. pretty much expensive for a phone that will cost you about $900.00. so until i still feel that it is a rip off, the iphone 3g stays on rob’s wishlist.
here’s a screen shot i got from the web of the iphone 3g plan pricing in my home country:
as of now the exchange rate of 1usd = 44.6 php. now let’s do the math: the freaking iphone 3g 16gb will cost almost a thousand – yes, a thousand dollars for the prepaid kit! goodness. what-the-fuck were they thinking?! my mouth just went agape when i saw this pricing scheme. it’s just . . crazy. but crazy as it is, iphone 3g will still sell in the philippines but for me, this is a crappy no-no. fuck it.
