A good read from ZDNet on iPhone 3G – Apple’s reality distortion field redefines the phrase “half the price”

Here’s an extract from the article:

Here’s the deal. An 8GB iPhone 3G costs $199. Sounds good so far. However, AT&T has added an extra $10 a month to the unlimited 3G monthly fees compared to EDGE, so over the 24 month period of the contract, that sets you back an extra $240.

$199 + $240 = $439

That’s a $40 increase compared to the price of the current iPhone.

The cost is now push to the operator… and your monthly subscription fees. 🙂 Well, people will still flock to the iPhone regardless cos now, they can spread their cost for enjoyment over a 24 months period. Have fun now, worry later.
