iPhone 5 in Australia

The iPhone 5 (name yet to be confirmed) is sure to be released very soon in Australia. Following on from the improvements in the iPhone 4 in Australia the Australian iPhone 5 should be a masterpiece.

As the iPhone continues to evolve it undoubtedly becomes harder and harder for Apple to improve it but Apple seems to be up for the challenge!

What features do you want to see in the Australian iPhone 5? Will you buy it straight away?

Feel free to add a comment. Feel free to speculate.

Happy iPhone-ing!!

iPhone 4 in Australia

Despite initial reception issues, the iPhone 4 has been received very positively worldwide, Australia certainly not being an exception.

The iPhone 4 in Australia is available from Apple Retail Stores, the Apple Online Store and on both plans and prepaid services from all major telecommunications companies in Australia (including Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, etc.). As the iPhone 4 has been released for quite some time there are also opportunities for Australians to purchase it new or used from eBay or other trading websites.

As a price guide – to ensure Australians looking for the wonder phone don't get ripped off – it's available outright on the Apple Online Store in Australia for $859 (16GB) and $999 (32GB) respectively. For those interested, the Australian iPhone 3GS (8GB) is also available directly from Apple in Australia for $719.

My advice for those keen on purchasing the iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 on a budget is to avoid buying it direct from Apple or on any prepaid services and grab a mid-range plan. These mid-range Australian iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 plans offer the best value (even when handset repayments are included).

The main features of the iPhone 4 in Australia include:
  • Facetime
  • Retina display
  • Multitasking
  • HD video recording and editing
  • 5mp camera with LED flash
  • iOS 4
  • The addition of iMovie and iBooks
So for those wanting a great phone that live in Australia, the iPhone 4 is certainly a strong option.

Until next post,

Happy iPhone-ing!!\
