In the recent news that the 3G iPhone was launched with a price of $199 by Steve Jobs, it’s only a hoax or bullshit because now consumers will make up for it with higher data plans.
Of course, you don’t need the data plan if you don’t plan on using broadband access but then what’s the point of getting an iPhone?
My guess is that AT&T just released their 3G technology that probably still sucks as everyone who buys the new 3G iPhone will become the guinea pigs.
If you want to be a pig, go ahead, but for me, no thanks. I will stick with proven brick-and-mortar Blackberry with Sprint’s EVDO for now.
As with the original iPhone, you’ll have to sign up for a 2-year contract in order to grab an iPhone. The iPhone 3G will have slightly higher data plan prices than the original model: individual users will now pay US$30/month for unlimited data, and business users will have to fork over $45/month.
