Taiwan’s Chungwa Telecom plans to sell 50,000 iPhone 3Gs in 3 months
One of the latest networks to gain the ability to brag about marketing the iPhone 3G is Taiwan’s Chungwa Telecom, and it is said that the telco plans to go full-speed with their iPhone 3G campaign starting December 13th.
The number 13 might spell a bad omen for some, but Chungwa Telecom apparently feels good about it, and from that day towards the first quarter of 2009, it aims to sell a total of at least 50,000 iPhone 3G units.
As with all the other networks around the world currently offering Apple’s popular touchscreen smartphone, Chungwa Telecom will give customers the ability to avail it for free (with a two-year contract that costs a NT$2,549 per month) as well as for a fixed price (NT$26,600 or $799 USD for the 8GB model, and NT$29,900 or $899 USD).
Pre-sale orders are already being taken by Chungwa Telecom, and it will go on until December 10th. The current estimated number of pre-sale orders has already topped 10,000 units.
