SmarTone launching iPhone 3G, 3GS in Hong Kong

SmarTone/Vodafone is preparing to launch the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS in Hong Kong. The carrier will become Hong Kong’s second to offer the iPhone directly, but has little information about its plans and pricing online, offering only a simple form to sign up for future updates. Competing carrier 3 has sold the iPhone 3GS since July, and offers pricing between HK $4,880 (roughly $630) for a 32GB iPhone 3GS on the cheapest plan—which offers 100MB of data and 400 basic minutes for HK $138 (~$18)—to free for a 16GB model with the most expensive, HK $398 (~$51) monthly tariff. The iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS were also previously available unlocked directly from Apple online.
