Right after the WWDC 2008 where Apple CEO Steve Jobs revealed the new 3G iPhone 2.0, Globe Telecom released news that it will be offering the new iPhone to the Philippines.
Apple is selling the iPhone 3G at $199 for the 8GB model and $299 for the 16GB model. The units will also come in black and white colors (plastic backplating). Of course, the price includes a 2-year contract with Globe.
“œWe are very excited to be working with Apple to bring Filipino consumers iPhone 3G later this year,” said Gerardo C. Ablaza, Jr. president and CEO of Globe Telecom. “œOur customers are our greatest passion and we’re constantly striving to offer them the most innovative products such as the revolutionary iPhone 3G.”
“œWe are thrilled to bring iPhone 3G to millions of mobile customers in the Philippines,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s COO. “œWe can’t wait to get this revolutionary mobile device in the hands of even more people around the world.”
iPhone 3G will be available to Globe’s postpaid and prepaid subscribers in the Philippines later this year. Specs include GPS, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, and EDGE capability.
