A is for Apple iPhone 3G

Have you heard?  Have you heard? 😆

Come July 11, Apple will release its latest baby, the Apple iPhone 3G.  What’s even more unbelievable is that it will be twice as fast, and at a remarkable starting price of USD199 for the 8GB version (and USD299 for the 16GB), it’s gonna cost like half the price of what it used to cost.  With the petrol price hike and whatnot, this is very welcome news indeed.

Here’s what it says on the Apple website:

Introducing iPhone 3G. With fast 3G wireless technology, GPS mapping, support for enterprise features like Microsoft Exchange, and the new App Store, iPhone 3G puts even more features at your fingertips. And like the original iPhone, it combines three products in one — a revolutionary phone, a widescreen iPod, and a breakthrough Internet device with rich HTML email and a desktop-class web browser. iPhone 3G. It redefines what a mobile phone can do — again 

When my hubby was in Oregon on a business trip last month, I said no thank you to the iPhone, because I figured I would be better off with a Coach bag (or two) in the long run.  But now, with such a cool Apple iPhone being made available at an even cooler price, haha….I might just change my mind, especially after reading the 5 reasons to get an iPhone.

Anyone else wanna add on to those reasons to truly convince me?

    The Giddy Tigress says: Yeah, that’s what I noticed at first too! hehehe… get another one lor….the one you have can pass to your kids 😛

  3. Vien says:

    Just get it..furthermore, it’s tax-free at OR..assuming your hub is gonna get from there again.

    The Giddy Tigress says: Nah…he’ll not be going there anytime soon, but I heard that the iPhone will be available in Singapore!

  4. Tine says:

    It’s HAWT! What other reasons do you need? 😛

    The Giddy Tigress says: Reason to spend additional moolah 😛

  5. parisb says:

    I better not look since I’m all gadgeted out. It still has no wifi yes? Only 3G?

    The Giddy Tigress says: Of course it has wifi, my dear….iPhones all have wifi. PLUS it comes with GPS for this new one!!

  6. iamthewitch says:

    Hmmm I read that iphones are not very friendly to users with nails. If you have long nails then the touch pad is not sensitive to your nails so it’ll be more difficult for you to navigate. You’ll need to try it out at the shops first before deciding 🙂

    The Giddy Tigress says: I can’t keep too long nails now with a kid around… 😛

  7. cc says:

    The cheaper price tag has made is more tempting than ever! It’ll be released in more countries too, so no more paying someone to hack the phone! I’m seriously considering now.

    The Giddy Tigress says: Let me know your decision 🙂

  8. Allan says:

    Sigh….still no Wi-Fi?…anyway, it still looks kewl for such a cheap price tag attached to it!

    The Giddy Tigress says: Eh, got wifi what…who sez none… got wifi, go get it, quick quick!!!

  9. rinnah says:

    If it ain’t got WiFi then it’s no good for me. LOL.

    But that price tag is nice n cheap though… wonder if I can get Nokia NSeries for cheaper over there and ask my friend to bring it back to Malaysia for me? Hmm…

    The Giddy Tigress says: Got wifi leh…where you get the idea no wifi one? If no wifi, how to surf wor?

  10. mistipurple says:

    ok, i’m going to sound lame. i don’t know if i would know how to use it. i am happy with just basic functions type of gal.

    The Giddy Tigress says: Actually I too use the phone for making and receiving calls only 😛

  11. Pink Cotton says:

    okok one reason…

    its a sleek phone for a sleek and elegant lady

    is that a reason good enough for u??heheeh

    The Giddy Tigress says: Ha, but what about the inflation? 😛

  12. ehon says:

    ME ME ME!! I was so super duper excited when I saw the list of the countries and Australia was in it! Although I will be away when they release it, hopefully when I come back, the offer is still on!!

    The Giddy Tigress says: I shall hope to see it featured on your blog soon! If you ain’t in Australia, I know it’s gonna be available in Singapore too!

  13. I want it!! It’s gonna be in the Philippines in July too, so I am now very very sweet to my hubby … *smiling wickedly*

    The Giddy Tigress says: Hope your tactics work! *wink*

  14. sasha says:

    The Giddy Tigress says: Oh none ah? Not sure of that wor…my Nokia N73 got la 😆

  15. wuching says:

    wuah! I also want lah!

    The Giddy Tigress says: Go get it then…I heard it will be available in Australia too!

  16. parisb says:

    With wifi? At that price? I’d get it 😛 But we probably wont get it at that price?

    The Giddy Tigress says: Well, if you get someone to bring it back from US, it’ll be at that price…

  17. huisia says:

    i definitely will get it…haha…

    The Giddy Tigress says: And I trust you will!

  18. LB says:

    I am getting six..

    The Giddy Tigress says: SIX???!!!! Whatever for? Is one of them for me?

  19. Boss Cat says:

    so you getting one for me right? HO YEAH!!!!

    kam siah first…

    with such a low price and everyone is getting one.. so BEWARE people don’t get mix up your iPHONE with others.. hehe…

    The Giddy Tigress says: Yup, everyone is carrying one these days….

  20. I got to have two of these. one for me and one for my firlfriend. I’m sure she’ll love it. And I’m sure i can afford it.

    The Giddy Tigress says: Wow..lucky you! Have fun with your iPhones!

  21. narrowband says:

    YES, YES, YES!! I *SO* DIG THIS PHONE!

    But did you hear about the telco package thingy? The cheap price is very attractive but they have not factored in the network provider charges. It’s such a highly desirable phone. I hope the camera is good, and has GPS and all that. I mean it has to be at least better than the N95 in some ways. In terms of cool-factor though, the iPhone wins hands-down!

    The Giddy Tigress says: Isn’t it a standard telco package thing? I mean you just get the phone and plug in the SIM, yes? It definitely has GPS, that’s for sure.

  22. Michael says:

    This is definitely the time to buy the iphone. The price has gone way down and they improved the software on it as well. I am definitely going to consider switching to at&t to get this phone.
