must-have later

xmas-iphone

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.

ripoff

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.
