Its Here… But,

19 08 2008

The prices are rather painful. Yes, looking at the plans, it is rather depressing to decide if I would want to buy one. But guess what, anything for El Jobsco’s Invention of the Year (2007). So, what are the prices like? Read the email we got from the SingTel Dudes 🙂




Hello K Kapilan, 

As you are a valued SingTel customer you are one of the very first to know.

As you can see, SingTel is having a Launch Party on the 22nd at Midnight at the ComCentre. I will be there to cover the event. I hope it will be fun and I really Do Hope that one of my parents will be able to follow me there. I mean, I am under 18, so I guess they would not allow me to sign up for a new plan. Anyway, after finalizing the reservation, this is what was displayed on the screen.
