iPhone debuts in Austria, Ireland

updated 07:55 am EDT, Fri March 14, 2008

iPhone Austria Ireland

Apple on Friday introduced the iPhone to Austria and Ireland, the first countries to receive the handset since 2007. Already confirmed via its website, T-Mobile will be the exclusive carrier in Austria and is both announcing and launching the iPhone today. The European provider will offer just two service plans for the phone. A 39 Classic plan offers 1,000 minutes of calling to any network, Visual Voicemail, up to 3GB of data transfer per month, and SMS text messages at 25 Euro cents each; a 55 Supreme plan offers both unlimited calling and text messages with the same data cap. A two-year contract is required.

O2 has previously announced its plans, which range from 45 to 100 for between 175 and 700 minutes of call time, 100 to 250 built-in SMS messages, and a 1GB data limit. As with the British release, the plan requires an 18-month plan.

In both countries, the iPhone itself will sell at 399 for an 8GB model and 499 for a 16GB version, either of which is available directly through Apple's online stores in the respective territories. Austrians can also buy the iPhone through either T-Mobile's retail or online stores, while Irish customers can buy the phone through O2.

    Roaming

    I think it's a shame that it still isn't feasible to use an iPhone outside one's own country, because of international roaming data rates.

    I think I may go through withdrawl when I put it in "no data" mode for my trip to Dublin next month, which seems silly since the phone is availbale there as well.

    Get's introduced and....

    nobody even cares. This announcement is about as low key as one can get. It sure didn't do anything for Apple's stock price. I guess these countries are too small to get worked up about. I didn't see one article about waiting in long lines to pick up iPhones. I think the hype has truly worn off. Yawn. Too bad. It was fun while it lasted.
