Singtel just recently launched the iPhone here in Singapore. I’ve been patiently waiting for it to be released here. Watching all the cool apps that are being released for it that don’t quite work because I have an iPod touch instead of a full iPhone is painful.
However, I don’t think I am going to jump in just yet. The killer app I was waiting for is the Sling Player. And this has not been released yet. On top of that, the data caps that singtel has are too small for me. Their plans are either 1GB, 2GB or 3GB for S$56, S$95 or S$195 respectively. I estimate that if I were to use my Slingbox excessively I would hit somewhere in the neighborhood of 5-8GB of throughput.
Hopefully when M1 or Starhub release the iPhone here in a few months they will relax the restrictions.
