South African iPhone 3GS pricing

At long last I finally found some package pricing for the new Apple iPhone 3GS due to be launched by Vodacom in South Africa sometime around the end of July 2009 or early August. Thanks to my new jacked up service provider Cellucity for the information. Initially it seems only the white model will be available. Here are the prices I was sent.

All prices are subject to a 24 month contract and excludes the monthly contract fees.

Apparently the iPHONE 3GS TALK packages will include an SMS and Data bundle which explains why the once-off payments are higher than the respective TALK packages. Personally I can’t wait to get my new iPhone 3GS.
