iPhone 3G in Singapore on August 22

I just gotten the email from Apple itself, mentioning iPhone 3G will be available on August 22nd for those who are interested.

In the mean time, SingTel has officially announce the price plan as well.

Although $56 plan is pretty steep, but the price plan of iFlexi Value are not too bad actually to have 1GB of monthly data (that should be enough for mobile browsing, unless you stream YouTube video everyday on the road, then 1GB will not be enough).

The bad news is, unlike Starhub that cap data usage at $36 a month, SingTel doesn’t, so you can possibly paying hundreds of dollars for your data plan if you’re not careful.

The second bad news is, in order to enjoy that FREE 1GB local data, you have to signup before 5th September 2008, that’s like two weeks after it will be launched this Friday. But then, with COMEX coming along next week, expect LOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG QUEUE at Suntec City when people will queue for iPhone.

Wait a minute, maybe that’s actually a good news. With LOTS of people busy queuing for the iPhone, the rest of Suntec City will be empty for me to roam around, *fat hope* 😀

    FREE is almost always a good marketing strategy 🙂

    Heck i even brave the cold winter night queueing 4 hours starting from 1AM to get half-priced camcorders 🙂
