Apple named just Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong & Macau, India and the Philippines as Asian markets earmarked for the new device this year. China, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Taiwan were among notable omissions from the list although the likes of Equatorial Guinea, Nicaragua and Botswana made the cut!

Not much choice left for us. We can only get illegal hacked version from other countries. Not to mentioned about the 3G version, even the older version is not here yet!

How legal or illegal is it, to own a hacked version from Singapore?

Apple iPhone 3G is Out!

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

I have been eyeing for an iPhone quite some time. It's not coming to Malaysia yet. I have asked some dealers in Low Yat, who brought iPhones from other countries. It costs around RM1700 for 8GB version. Some are selling it for RM1850!

Now, the new iPhone 3G will be out on July 11, with HALF THE PRICE. It costs only USD199 for the 8GB version and USD299 for 16GB version. I wonder how much it would cost to get one now. Hopefully Apple will bring it to Malaysia soon.

The best part of the iPhone 3G is of course the 3G functionality, and it comes with GPS as well. It could replace my Dopod D810 any time!

Note: I hope to upload some pictures but I'm not able to upload any using the WordPress' flash image uploader when I'm in the office, although it works fine from home. Probably it doesn't work well through a lousy proxy server.
