Apple now selling iPhone 3G unlocked in Hong Kong

Apple is now selling its iPhone 3G unlocked via its on-line Apple Store in Hong Kong. The 8GB model sells for HK$5,500 (about US$694) or HK$6,200 (about $797) for the 16GB model. It was already available since July 11th with a local Hutchison Telecommunications contract. So, will the officially unlocked iPhone 3G become available on the US Apple online store soon? 😉 It IS gonna happen, we just don’t know when. :/

This is the first time that Apple has sold its device unlocked in Hong Kong:

“iPhone 3G purchased at the Apple Online Store can be activated with any wireless carrier. Simply insert the SIM from your current phone into iPhone 3G and connect to iTunes 8 to complete activation.”

The terms and conditions limit sales to those in Hong Kong only — not that the gray market cares about T&Cs. 😛 eBay, anyone?

It’ll be interesting to see if Apple extends the unlocking more broadly (presumably as exclusivity deals expire) or if this is strictly a local phenomena. Officially unlocked iPhone 3G’s have been popping up in Australia, New Zeland, Switzerlan, Italy, Germany[black market], and the UK [illegally sold in some stores].

Black or White?

As some of you might already know, m old iPhone passed away a few months ago.. God rest its cercuits! And an acquaintance of mine just got a shipment of legally unlocked white iPhone 3G’s. The good thing is, the white one only comes in a 16GB version. The only downside here is that I’ve had my eye on the black one for quite some time.

The one thing I’m worried about is not being able to install the [Installer] application that would allow me to install Arabic fonts and additional supporting applications.

So, should I go ahead and get it? or should I hold out for a black version. Of course, the phone is ridiculously overpriced.. but I’m out of options. Note that only the back of the phone is white.





New MacBook Pro on German site?

.Could this really be the upcoming MacBook Pro?

There have been many conceptual fan-made mock-ups of the upcoming MacBooks and MacBook Pros, but this German website has a profile page for the unreleased MacBook Pros. The picture depicts a design that pretty much fits the rumors floating around about the new redesign of Apple professional notebook line.

Note that the company ‘T-Systems’ is a division of the same company that owns T-Mobile. So, it seems legit.

So, what do you think? Real or a really good Fake?

Apple Online Store is Down = new Releases

8 07 2008

It’s a generally known fact the whenever the Apple online store goes down (ristricted).. And you see that little yellow postit.. It means that a new product is set to be released on that day.

For several weeks after Steve Jobs keynote at Macworld 2008, apple had been releasing new products on every tuesday..

And it seems as if they’re aiming for another new release today.

Keep your fingers crossed for a redesigned MacBook Pro!

But some sources suggest that it’s just those long overdue redesign of the Apple Cinema Displays.

Update: False alarm. The page layout has been slightly edited and a few offers have been update.
