iPhone 3GS release date and prices for Thailand

TRUE Move officially takes now pre-orders on iPhone 3GS (2,000 Baht deposit).

Apple however did only allocate 1,000 Units for TRUE Move at first. Buyers who pre-ordered can pickup the device between August 28th and September 3rd.
Prices are THB 24,500 for the 16GB Version and 28,500 for the 32GB Version.
TRUE Move stated that these prices are subsidized.
This in return would mean they are not officially unlocked and can’t used with any other provider.
There is however no official statement on that yet and I will update here as soon as any trustworthily information are released.
In the meantime and if you are a business person, just go ahead and read about our Blackberry Devices. It will still be the better choice.

    That wouldn't be much of a subsidy – at the most $50? I hope they don't end up being locked to a carrier.

    According to my information, the iPhones from TRUE require a contract but aren't locked. So you could simply swap Sim right away.

    thailand is so crap at phones!!even if you get a contract you get a measley 60 dollar discount! (pathetic!!)also: if you buy the phone outside of apple or True, you only get a 1 year warranty on the SOFTWARE!!! (no warranty on the phone itself!!)

    also:: 3G in thailand… (what a joke!!)i have a friend that works at TOT (thailands government telecommunications network). she is part of the team responsible for the layout of 3G in thailand. she was telling me about 3G about 8 months ago.. (and to date: 8 mths later, 3G is still only available in 2 shopping centres in bangkok!!)so basically, 3G doesnt exist in thailand unless you are in one of the MAIN shopping centres!so much corruption and bureaucracy makes technology in the country fall behind.funny how movies are always here before europe though! (though they pay no attention to the Age Certificate; and readily show horror trailers for a kids movie!!)

    PS: as of now, the 3Gs is on sale STAND ALONE (unlocked) at True and Apple licensed Stores in Thailand for 26,000 baht (inc vat). (16GB)

    No you only get them in TRUE Stores. They have both 16GB and 32GB, all unlocked and not require a contract.We all know about the problems here, so that's nothing new. And 3G might never come or at least not in the next 2 years according to some insider information. Bureaucracy doesn't work here as we are used to it in western countries. Nevertheless we enjoy our stay here, right?
