Pricey iPhone

Posted: December 18, 2008 in Bermuda, Mac, Technology

Just happened to be in Cellular One’s Reid Street store today and saw they had an iPhone in the window. I got all excited until I saw the price tag: $999 !!!! – and that’s WITH a one-year contract. When I bought one in Toronto for my daughter it was $299 with a two-year commitment. I’m guessing that the high price is because Cellular One doesn’t have an official deal with Apple and it is having to buy them unlocked (A quick look online confirms that unlocked iPhones are going for anywhere from US$550 to US$750). It remains to be seen, of course, how they’ll perform on CellOne’s 3G network due early next year. In the meantime, at that price it’s going to have to be a toss up betwen a phone and a new MacBook.
