iPhone 3GS: Hong Kong Pricing

Apple store in Hong Kong has started selling Unlocked iPhone 3GS following Australia’s. These can use any sim from any telco around the world without the need to jailbreak. A 16GB is going for $HK5388 / US$695 (RM2483) while a 32GB at $HK6288 / US$811 (RM2891). Apple seems less tied down by it’s business partners this time around by selling these on launch day. For comparison purpose, an unlocked SingTel 16Gb iPhone 3G was selling for RM2,800 just a two months back by parallel importers in local forums. Now, RM2891 – just an additional RM91 can get you a 32Gb iPhone 3G S. With this in mind, let’s just hope Maxis will not be a greedy bastard and package its pricing accordingly come 15th July 2009 when it will announce it’s pricing. Else, your better alternative would be getting one from either Australia or Hong Kong.

    Wow! i didn’t know that the new iphone came in white as well. I prefer the white one only downside that it would get dirty easily. $695 is not that bad a price actually as for me purchasing one.. don’t think i’ll be purchasing one for a while you know the whole “independant” life i’ve have now. Its amazing how expensive it actually is to live on your own!

    Still have not decided. I think I want to take a look at HTC’s HERO before making my decision. Worst come to worst, I’ll just get HERO and keep my current iPhone. So, I’ll have the best of both worlds. But then again, somehow, i think I should stick with Apple instead. Its not what the hardware can do, but more on the user experience, operating system and apps.

    Yeah. Living on your own away from home is not cheap at all. But its a good thing. It will make you cherish what one would normally take for granted more. Stay away from too much canned food or instant noodles though … 🙂
