The new iPhone 4S was recently released. The event was followed by the discovery of its faster processor and upgraded camera that made interested people from all around the world. Therefore, Australians should be relieved to find out that their country will be one of the first to experience the iPhone 4S that will be available for sale starting with October 14, 2011. That means any Australian will be able to buy an iPhone 4S from Telstra, Vodafone or Optus as long as he/she agrees to pay $799 for the 16GB version.
What’s so amazing about this iPhone 4S? Let’s start by presenting the personal assistant app named Siri that responds to spoken commands and questions. Siri is an advanced speech-recognition app meant to help users manage calendar appointment and find useful weather information or the best restaurant.
Another great, new feature is the improved camera that has 8 megapixels and a higher-resolution sensor. In addition, the new iPhone 4S is equipped with a faster processor that helps it run smoother and support more realistic action games. The improvements extend to the software used because of the iOS 5 release. This new Apple OS comes with great features including the possibility to wirelessly sync content. However, this is a feature that iPhone 4S users will share with iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 users.
Australians also need to know that the iPhone 4S will be available in black and white while the prices will be $799 – 16GB version, $899 – 32GB version and $999 – 64 GB version. To be the first Australian to get it you can preorder it. The only downside is that Telstra announced that the iPhone 4S will not be compatible with Telco’s 4G network.
If you are also interested in what plans are offered by Australian carriers for the iPhone 4S, then you should know that both Optus and Vodafone offer 12 or 24-month contracts. The price of the contract depends on the iPhone 4S’s capacity and the minutes, text messages and data amount included. For example, Vodafone offers a plan that costs $44 per month for a 16GB model and 200MB of data. For an additional 1500MB of data and call credit you will have to pay an extra $10. Maybe it seems a lot, but considering the other offers on the market, this is the most budget-friendly one. To give you the chance of a comparison, I also want to let you know the value of the priciest option. This alternative is offered by Telstra and will force you to spend $3,216 over two years for the 64GB model.
