Optus plans: iPhone vs. Android
Optus is asking its customers to choose between two of the most popular handsets of 2008, the iPhone 3G and the Android-powered HTC Dream, we take a look at the pricing.
Optus will make the Dream available on four plans similar to those it used for the iPhone: $59 and $79 "yes" Cap plans, plus $99 and $129 "yes" Timeless contracts that include unlimited national calls and messages.
Differences in the handsets aside, we take a close look at how much each phone will cost when Optus releases the Dream on 16 February.
$59 "yes" Cap plan
$79 "yes" Cap plan
$99 "yes" Timeless plan
$129 "yes" Timeless plan
*p/m = per month
**Unlimited = unlimited calls and text messages to Australian mobiles and landlines.
8GB iPhone 3G models were used for comparison in these tables
So the Google phone will cost more than the iPhone 3G. Do you think it's worth the extra money? Does the idea of free apps on the Android Market add the extra value you want to buy the Dream? Tell us below in the talkback or jump on the forums.
