    Great… I was thinking of this earlier. Now, will 3G owners upgrade to 3GS? Would you Sir Yuga? Or would you wait for the HTC Hero or whatever Apple will release next year?

    but how much will be the price of the iphone 3G 8g when the new iphone 3G S comes…
    hopefully around 20k-25k for prepaid…

  7. ron says:

    a bit off topic, what i’ve been waiting to hear from globe is their response to smartalk, any buzz?

  8. Ardz says:

    This will be very expensive for sure.

  9. beadfreak says:

    i think Globe wouldn’t counter Smart with another service offering since they do have the DUO already and Globe a few years back started that call-all-you-can promo by subscribing daily

  10. beadfreak says:

    i’ve heard this will be cheaper than the first iPhone

  11. arnold says:

    Considering that what separates the 3G over the 3G S are the ff: – video capture, speed, and 3.2 camera it would be wise for Globe to offer this at a lower price than when it offered the 3G last year. Those features are not enough reason to offer the 3G S at a higher price.

  12. Ardz says:

    I told you it’s gonna be very expensive.

  13. DodGe says:

    I reserved on July 16 I think and Globe said they’ll contact me within 48 hrs but they hadn’t contacted me yet. ??

    Finally, dumating din sa Pilipinas ang bagong iPhone! Yipee! Super tagal ko na hinihintay ‘to. Thanks, Globe! I’m upgrading from my old iPhone to the new iPhone 3Gs. I’ve read the reviews and found out na mas mabilis nga ‘to than the old model. Mas mahaba rin ang battery life ngayon.The best thing: maraming plans inooffer ang Globe ngayon. More options for me and my gadget-crazy friends haha.

    I just got my Iphone 3GS 32GB! I’m sooo happy! looks like early christmas for me this year! :D now its time to upgrade my plan to a DUO para naman sulit ang new phone ko sa akin :)
