Apple Iphone 3G in the Philippines

Filipino blogs and forums have a plethora of discussions and comments about the new iPhone. Too bad for some Pinoys last June 29 last year when the 1st Gen iPhone was released in Cupertino; but too good for us now because Globe Philippines was able to tie-up with Apple to sell the 2nd Gen iphone in the Philippines!

Abe Olandres, a blogging mogul in the Philippines, mentioned in his blog Yugatech that they got a email tip from an alleged Globe insider that 3G iPhone will be softly launched with the following rates for postpaid plans:
