When Apple announced 8GB versions for earlier iPhone models, it was meant to be entry level models to make it affordable for the masses. That doesn’t seem to be the case here until recently.
Apart from the iPhone 4 8GB which can be bought for RM1,799 outright, reader David had pointed out that Apple Store is also offering the iPhone 3GS 8GB for RM1,199 outright. This makes it cheaper and can be a choice for mid level smart phone buyers.
The iPhone 3GS is still decent smart phone with access to a huge library of apps on the App store. In terms of software, it is still on par with the latest iPhone as it supports iOS 5 albeit with reduced new features. Other smart phones within that price range are Sony Ericsson Xperia ray, LG Optimus Black, Samsung Galaxy S Plus and Samsung Galaxy W.
