Irish getting a raw deal with the iPhone

It was announced recently that the iPhone will be released in Ireland the 14th of this month. However, although that is exciting news for them, they won’t be getting quite as many of the perks that we all know and love.

The iPhone will be sold through O2 and the Carphone Warehouse stores. The 8GB are apparently going to go for about $800 and the 16GB for $900. They will have three different plans available the cheapest being $90 per month.
They sadly won’t include free Wi-Fi and have a 1GB data cap (unlike the US and UK which have unlimited). On the cheapest plan the buyers will only receive 175 minutes and 100 texts, to give you an idea the lowest rate in the UK gets you 600 minutes and 500 texts.
