I thought of buying an Apple iPhone. After all, almost everyone has it and it can help me relieve boredom on those long train rides. However, I have been going to some major telcos' shops and they seem to be sold out. I did give it another thought and it did occur to me that the iPhone is only good if you have a data plan. From casual asking, this would costs about $60 per month and it excludes SMS. An iPhone without data plan means that one cannot readily access facebook or other time wasting website. It would be no different from a iPod Touch, a conclusion that my girlfriend reached. Given these considerations, I think I will wait until iPhone is so commoditized or that data download plans become very competitive, before getting one. Isn't it strange that with more competition on a small island, it is so costly to get an internet data plan on the cheap. Good night everyone.
