Highly anticipated telco -2degrees- has just announced on twitter that they will be launching their network on the 5th of August. However, information on the price plans, mobile handsets and their subsidies will only be available the day before to the press at a preview in Auckland.
Since we're heading towards the end of the month we should receive the free SIM cards with $5 prepaid credit soon for those who signed-up for their promotional Chinwag event.
2degrees have been keeping their cards close to their chest so we have no indication what mobiles they will be carrying so we can't do much but speculate. Personally, I'm hoping for a nice surprise with a great line of smartphones (Palm Pre or HTC Hero?) when they launch.
