iPhone in Puerto Rico/USVI
AT&T has announced that it is set to launch the iPhone 3G in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands on October 17th. Customers in the territories will have the benefit of pricing that matches stateside terms, specifically the $200 price for an 8GB model, and the $300 charge for 16GB. Apple and AT&T could face extra competition shortly after the launch, due to T-Mobile's acquisition of SunCom Wireless in both the Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands markets. T-Mobile will begin offering Google's G1 phone on October 22, although it is unknown if the initial launch will include the Caribbean.
