Lines have already formed in all Apple Stores and Authorized Reseller Stores across the city of HK as early as 6AM today. Customers are given claim stubs based on pre-orders they made at the Apple Online Store last September 13.

Based on the Apple Hong Kong Online Store, the iPhone 5C will sell for Php26,500 while the iPhone 5S will start at Php32,000.

      “You can’t afford an iPhone”
      – Typical response ng mga iTards. As if mayayaman kayo. Puro lang kayo porma ah.

    Huwag naman niyong sabihing tanga yung mga Pilipinong pumipila sa HK para bumili ng iPhone. To be fair, hindi lang mga Pilipino ang mga lahi ng nakapila don. :))

    Nakakahiya namang basahin mga comments dito. Bakit pinapayagan ng Yugatech ang ganitong klaseng comment section na napakababa ng quality, bordering sa level ng hindi sibilisado. Guys, respeto na lang siguro sa isa’t-isa. Hindi nakakatuwa ang flaming na nangyayari na lang lagi dito sa Yugatech comment section.

    So what is the big deal about this article’s headline? Obviously those people have money to spend, so good for them. Why should we care about how people spend their own money? They will help the local economy moving by spending on gas/bus/taxicabs,foods at the airport and plane tickets. The only shame is if they did not fly there by PAL. But again, it’s their own money so we don’t have a say on how they fly.

    anu ba pake alam nyo.. e may mga pera nmn cla.. lumalabas mga bitter lng kayo.. kc hangang dito lng kayo sa pinas nd android lng afford nyo!!

    • AndroidFan says:

      Alam mo ba pinag sasabi mo ha? For your information, android ang OS ng VERTU, the most expensive and only luxury phone. Umpisa sa hundreds to million ang vertu. May dalawang vertu ako, does that mean poor ako dahil di ako pumunta ng HK at bumili ng chipipay na apple? Ganun? Mag aral ka muna bago ka mang offend! Malau super yaman ang mga naka android.

    • zarne says:

      @ AndroidFan….Vertu made luxury phones but Vertu phones are not the most expensive or the only luxurious phones around. The cost of the Vertu T1 at $11,000 is a drop in the bucket in comparison to the Iphone 5 ‘diamond editon’ at $15 million.

    Filipino stupidity at its grandest

  15. Stu says:

    Hi guys! If I buy an iPhone5S unlocked in the US, will it work in the Philippines?

    • zarne says:

      No, the phone will only understand english because
      you bought it from the States. Heh heh, just kidding Stu. I am sure the unlock Iphone would work in the Philippines.

  16. AsusFan says:

    Yaan nyo na mga yan, may pambili sila eh… Nganga na lang tayong mga mahihirap…

    Tapos after one week may mga magrereklamo sa Forums na na-snatch iPhones nila…

    Honestly, kuntento n ako sa aking ever faithful nokia 5110. Hindi ito high tech na android or functional na bb10, or spartan na ubuntu, Wlang real time auto video nakakabit sa tracker kya d ako mahuli ni misis sa aking kulasisi. Wlna rin call pairing tracker auto kya d alam ni misis tawag ni kulasisi. Maiwan k man sa resto if kumain ibabalik ng guard sa akin for sure, kalat lang daw. At mgandang pandikdik ng bawang at sili sukang sawsawan sa pulutan sa tomang barkada.
