15 June 2008 @ 19:55iPhone 3G cost over 2 years
Gizmodo has an article comparing the cost of the original iPhone over two years to the cost of the iPhone 3G over two years. Also compared are the AT&T HTC Tilt 3G, the Sprint HTC Mogul 3G, and the Verizon XV6800 3G. The conclusion is that yes, the new iPhone 3G, although priced at $199 will cost you $160 more over the course of the 2 years than the original iPhone. That’s a small price to pay for the added features and speed.
When you compare the iPhone 3G to the other phones, it will cost you as much as $200 dollars less (and $20 more than the Mogul) over the course of two years.
