So we all know that the 8GB iphone 3G has not been phased out and will get a price drop to US$99 for AT&T customers in the US. But how much will it cost here?
We can't get a definite price of course as the US$99 model comes with a 2 year contract with it's different combinations of calls, text and data so I'll be making a very general estimation here.
The 8GB iphone 3G from Vodafone NZ currently costs NZ$979 without a plan while
it used to cost US$199 for the same phone in the US with a contract. So using my powers of (flawed) theoretical maths:
NZ$487. That's how much it should cost. I think...
Anyone can provide a better calculation?
Update: I'm also factoring variables like tempting new followers, the recession and a completely different contract plan subsidy for the new low price. I feel the iPhone 3G could be the Macbook to the 3GS's Macbook Pro.
