Good for me as I already have a 1st generation iPhone and I don’t need or even want to upgrade as we can also have the firmware 2.0 anyway.

I felt that Apple should not have announced that they are bringing down the price to $199 in order for other people to experience this beautiful gadget. It’s just misleading.

Anyhow, I feel a lot of people will still grab the opportunity and get a new iPhone via Globe.

Hey, it’s still worth it. I love my iPhone 🙂
