3G iPhone for 8k++

Steve Jobs already announced (well, I’m a bit late for the news though) the availability of 3G iPhone to be released on 25 Countries, gladly, including Philippines. It would be officially released worldwide by July, and it would be available here locally probably by September.

The price would be fixed at $199 USD for 8GB and $299 for 16GB iPhone, worldwide. Nice eh? But there’s a catch… the iPhone would be released by Globe under postpaid or prepaid plans. And as of now, the prepaid plan has been on pending decision yet. Just in case, the 3G iPhone under prepaid would land on a price of at least PhP20,000 ~ PhP25,000 globe-locked. If you wonder what would be price under postpaid plans, check as someone does the math.

On my part, I just thought I became too excited so early. After counting some numbers, it was like someone slapped me to reality. I really thought I can exactly expect some PhP8,000 on iPhone from the market. Oh well.


Macbook Dilemma

I’ve been really itching to buy a Macbook…. aaaaaarrrgghhhhh! okay, breaaathhhe.. *inhale ~~~ *exhale~~~~

I’ve been eavesdropping on the Apple Market and there’s a rumor that Apple would be releasing soon within this year an aluminum Macbook. As we all know, all Apple notebooks were really pricey. As soon as it will be released, it would take a month or more for the new product to be available here in the Philippines. And by that time, the price of the older models (*though not that really old, only outdated, heh) would surely drop ~ and probably the price drop could only have little differences from the original market price. Apple computers are truly expensive. Going to the main Apple site, the big 3.06GHz of iMac might be “wowing” you ~ including the price. Heh.

Anyway, if the new Macbook would surely be released probably by August, then there’s no harm in saving up while waiting. Crossing my fingers, hopefully I could save and nothing would come up in between for emergencies. And oh, nope… its not for the new Macbook, its for the outdated Macbook or Macbook Pro.

Oh wait, my inner self was talking…

Hay naku, ambisosya talaga! Alam mo bang maraming nagugutom sa Pilipinas?

Really, a dilemma.
