BigFella:freitasm: And here comes the mainstream media:
IDC telecommunications market analyst Tim Shepheard said the phone was "not overly priced".
He said the plan and cost of the handset was "comparable" to other plans in New Zealand, which made it expensive internationally.
The $80/month plan was "no more" than other plans and though that made the handset more expensive, $549 was "not unreasonable" for the iPhone, Mr Shepheard said.
Where is this "analyst" living? There are plans of $49/month for 1 GB - on Vodafone! Charging $250 for the same GB is outrageous.
Does the $49/1GB plan include 600 minutes, 600 TXTs, and a $780 hardware subsidy?
Since this clown thinks it’s not expensive he can pay mine.
What a tool.
