Gingo's, Dunedin will be cold, they're tough Bas***** down there!


Up in Auckers we'll be wearing our boardshorts and jandals, sippin on a doubleshot flat white, made by some guy who owns a coffee cart that wants to cash in on the line hags.

11 days of waiting now.

Ok, a different question for Paul, do you know what stores will be open?  Will be only be the Vodafone owned ones or others such as Digital Mobile?

Many thanks!

Apparently the pricing for the iPhone plans in NZ will be out in a few more days:

Chris Keall from PC World:

Here at PC World Towers, we know Vodafone's NZ pricing, though we're still under NDA for another few days (keep watching this space ... and watch out for Scott on TV1's Breakfast with one of only two units in the country July 10).

What I can say is: Vodafone's 3G iPhone pricing will wipe out the parallel importers' Apple business.

 

Wow! I sure hope it will be as good as this sounds... :) Can't wait!!!

All Vodafone needs to do to "wipe out the parallel importers' Apple business" is to price the iPhone lower than the prepay options overseas. Remeber the PIs priced the iPhone around $1000, so if (as is speculated) Voda offer the 8Gb for around $300-400 on a 24 month contract, then that will seriously undercut the PIs. It isn't saying much really.

That won't wipe out the parellel import business because the iPhone is only going to be available on a term contract.

Is that fact? Most overseas carriers that have announced their pricing have also announced a no-tem-commitment price as well?

Well, it's fact in New Zealand at least - Vodafone's only going to make it available on-contract. At least that was what was hinted in their press release.

The average press release needs to be taken with a grain of salt, even when they are being direct.

A "hint" in a press release is totally worthless!

That depends Paul!  Be nice if we had some more info re the release e.g. 12:01am or 9:00am.  Also what is the guarantee that those who line up will get one?  

So many questions and so little answers.
