Belgian iPhone launch
Belgian iPhone 3G carrier Mobistar has confirmed it will sell the long-awaited device on July 11th, offering users a glimpse of its voice and data bundles, which seem to echo upsetting rates found in countries such as Canada, Mexico, and New Zealand, but with a slight upside. Despite offering plans ranging from €30 to €60 that contain a mere 200MB to 1GB of data, and three to nine hours of talk time, Mobistar is offering the 8GB handset itself for €525 (including VAT), devoid of any contract requirement on the user's part.
The plans seem to offer a joint connection between talk-time and SMS messages, however, stating that the plans come with three, six, or nine hours of voice, or 300/600/900 SMS messages.
