Here it is, what you’ll be spending on July 11th in Hong Kong!
UPDATE 2: AT&T has announced their prices in the US for the non-contract iPhones. 8GB model is US$599 (approx. HK$4800) and 16GB is US$699 (approx. HK$5600) respectively.
UPDATE 1: Hutchinson has released their official package information at their website here.
The Hutchinson 3G iPhone deal has just spread out on the web in Hong Kong, so upon further details from 3’s official channels, we’ll present you with the deal as we know it right now in the handy grid below on their contract deal which will span 24 months:
The deal works out pretty nicely, and we recommend going for the unlimited deal since you will definitely be bringing down large amounts of data as you try out all of the iPhone’s features. Keep in mind that every YouTube video you download is a huge file. Even if you are an accountant looking at Excel files, we can assure you, you will be playing around with all the features and will drive that phone bill through the roof in the first 3 months.
If you want to hold back on the HK$498/month deal, go for something in the middle and then sign-up for Netvigator’s unlimited Wi-Fi service which is HK$98 a month to any Netvigator subscriber. This allows you cheap and fast web access at any hotspot in Hong Kong (like Starbucks, McDonald’s, most every restaurant and cafe in SoHo) this will allow you to download the fun iPhone apps and watch videos like this one all for a much better rate than 3 is offering.We’ll be updating this story as we get more details.
