The iPhone IS in South Africa

UPDATE:

Go check out my new post on the 3G iPhone. It has videos on the new features, and more info on the fact that it’s coming to South Africa VERY soon. Read it by clicking here: iPhone

I was just walking through Sandton City Shopping Centre looking for my last Christmas Presents, when I spotted an iPhone in a shop window.

I was actually trying to find a little geeky gift under R100 for my Christmas party (more on that after the party).

I just HAD to ask the price, because we all know that sometimes it’s just good to buy yourself a Christmas Gift as well. 🙂

I’m not sure the salesperson was impressed with my response to the price:

R10,000

For those people NOT from South Africa, that works out to about $1,500. About 4 TIMES the price in the U.S.!!!

Anyway, I still don’t think you should splash out and buy it just yet.

Apparently there’s a new version coming out in the next 6 months or so that will be 3G enabled, which will definitely make the world of difference to your browsing experience.

And, hopefully it will be on an MTN, Vodacom, CellC or even a Virgin Mobile contract.
