What you might be expecting to pay for the 3G iPhone on July 11th.
With Apple’s 3G iPhone on its way to Hong Kong in 18 days, the online rumour mill is exploding on what operator 3 will be charging for the privilege of using the JesusPhone in Hong Kong.
Currently, tallying posted rumours on local Hong Kong sites we are looking at something similar to the US’s AT&T deal:
– 8GB model will be around HK$1580
– 16GB model: HK$2380
– The monthly bill: HK$300-450 per month. That will get you talk time plus an unlimited data plan.
– This will be for a 2 year minimum contract.
– A HK$1000 pre-payment fee that will be refunded to you over the next 24 months.
This is still speculation, but it sounds pretty much in line with what we would expect for this type of product. Unless there is some crazy typhoon that day, we expect to see A LOT of people lined up around Hong Kong at 3 stores to get their slice of the Apple.
