While we are still on the subject of the iPhone 3g, I learned today that the iPhone 3g will be available in Malaysia in a week or so through Maxis.
And the price? RM1900 for the 8gig and RM2290 for the 16 gig, with a 24 month contract.
Huh. Pricey. But according to heavy cell phone users in Malaysia, that rate is about the same as what they are paying right now, and with the iPhone 3g included to boot.
Compare that to the additional $30 for unlimited browsing on top of your existing plan with AT&T, and only $199 for the 8 gig and $299 for the 16 gig iPhone. Don't think you can find a better deal than that outside of the US!
I jailbroke my iPhone about a week ago, and with the jailbroken iPhone I can add a lot more applications that are not available at the iTunes store. One thing I have to watch though, is that I do not accidentally upgrade my iPhone to the latest firmware. Otherwise it will revert to its original unmodified state.
I have added PDANet which allows tethering with the iPhone. The ability to tether the iPhone is the main reason why I jailbroke my phone. And, oh, my iPhone is now unlocked. Er, at least I think it is, but I have not tested it because I do not have the SIM of another carrier to test it with.I have also added Snapture which vastly improves the iPhone camera. I can now touch any part of the screen and not have to rely on that little area on the screen to take a picture.
I think the iPhone is a wonderful machine .. it's like your Mac computer in a little piece of equipment.
Update: After I posted this entry, I went back to check the iPhone Video Recorder application offered by DreamCatcher. I bought it and it is indeed a cool app!
