iphone 3G

"apple's iphone 3G features and price"


i wasn't really interested on the 1st iphone cause it was very expensive here in the philippines. For several months now, I have been eyeing to buy an ipod touch until I heard my younger brother talking about the new iphone 3G that will have its price just the same as a brand new psp. That's only around the same price as the ipod touch but with ipone i could get the combination of a phone + ipod + internet access.

I fell inlove with it more when i learned its features:

♥ available in 8GB (black) and 16GB (black or white) models.

♥ With fast 3G wireless technology, GPS, support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, and the new App Store, iPhone 3G puts even more amazing features in your hands. And just like the original iPhone, it combines three products in one —a revolutionary phone, a widescreen iPod, and a breakthrough Internet device.

♥ 3G gives you fast access to the Internet and email over your cellular network. And 3G makes it easier to multitask: When connected via 3G, you can surf the web even while you’re on a call.


♥ iPhone redefines what you can do on a mobile phone. Tap a number to make a call. Listen to voicemail in any order with Visual Voicemail.

♥ iPhone is an equally brilliant iPod. Enjoy music, videos, and more on the 3.5-inch color display and browse by album artwork with Cover Flow.

♥ Internet in Your Pocket.. features rich HTML email, Maps with GPS, and Safari — the most advanced web browser ever on a portable device.

all these for only $199/$299 for 8GB/16GB, respectively.


I then, immediately emailed my bro in UK to buy me since its still not available in the Philippines but already available in UK last July 11, 2008.

But, with further reading, i read that the $199/$299 price is for AT&T subscribers and the unsubsidized price abroad is 499/€569 ($773/$881) for the 8GB/16GB models.
So, it will still be expensive in Philippine Peso.

So much for my excitement. :c It would still be expensive after all :c

I still don't know the prices here in the Philippines though, I am expecting it'll still be expensive but I hope it'll be as what they say that they would make iphone 3G cheaper (with the same price as sony's PSP) ooohhh **cross my fingers**
