Pace of international expansion slows
Apple has quietly revealed that it is launching the third-generation iPad in Guam and the Philippines on May 29th. Rather than making an official announcement, Apple has disclosed the news through its Asian iPad page, which has been updated to show the new locations. Other launch details have yet to be published, but Filipinos will have the advantage of ordering from Apple's online store.
Tethering available from start
The iPhone 4 is officially launching in the US territory of Guam on Friday. The expansion follows a series of recent releases, including South Africa and South Korea. GTA TeleGuam is set to be the carrier, and has already announced plan details. Of special interest may be the day-one availability of tethering, with a monthly cost of $15. It can be added and removed as needed. GTA is selling two family plans, and three standard plans.
US territory finally gains native carrier
The remote American-owned territory of Guam will at last get the iPhone on December 11th, according to carrier GTA TeleGuam. Hardware prices mirror those of AT&T, with an 8GB iPhone 3G costing $100, and a 16GB iPhone 3GS costing $200. A 32GB 3GS will cost $300.
