iPhone 3G from Globe to the Philippines

by Ka Edong on August 17, 2008

Does that make it 4G with Globe’s “G” included? 😀

I see a lot of hype about the iPhone 3G launch here in the Philippines. There are a lot of blogs who’ve posted prices and other information about the launch. So let me just describe what I’ve heard about the iPhone 3G, as told to me by a friend while I was in the US.

My friend Edmond, based in Chicago, had the predecesor iPhone. He said that a few weeks before the launch of the iPhone 3G, an upgrade was pushed to his phone. Of course, just like he did for most upgrades prior, he accepted the upgrade.

He regretted the upgrade! He said it terribly slowed down the iPhone. Even just sending SMS was sooooo slow after the upgrade. There were allegations that the upgrade that slowed down the iPhone was deliberate (allegations lang naman). People were saying this increased the demand for the iPhone 3G.

Today, I uploaded photos from a Mac Center in Chicago. I was there in July a day before the simultaneous launch of the iPhone 3G in the US and Europe. And you know what? The lines went all the way outside the store and around the block! Whew!

iPhone 3G - people lined up to get them

Will folks in the Philippines line up for the iPhone 3G? I haven’t seen such a phenomenon in the Philippines. Maybe for rice, but not for iPhones. 🙂 Here’s Globe’s iPhone 3G reservation page.

So, for all those who’ll be trying to get that elusive iPhone 3G … ingat!
