Worldwide Apple iPhone 4 carriers confirmed
Meet the new iPhone 4. Actually, you can't meet it in person since it's not here yet. As you already know, five lucky countries are expected to get it on 24 June while the rest will continue waiting. See which operators have already confirmed the availability date of the upcoming iPhone 4.
The five countries who'll first have the chance to get a taste of the iPhone 4 are USA, France, Germany, UK and Japan. Pre-orders in all 5 start on 15 June and a few days later, on 24 June, the phone will hit the stores.
There have been some rumors involving Verizon Wireless' name into the list of operators selling the thing across the USA. but as you may have already heard, AT&T will continue to be the only one (for now).
AT&T is also the only company to announce the iPhone 4 prices. The iPhone 4 16GB will cost you 199 USD while the doubled memory capacity (iPhone 4 32GB) will cost you another 100 USD (299 USD). The new iPhone 3GS 8GB will sell for 99 USD. Of course, a new 2-year contract with AT&T comes along with the phone.
By the way, all current AT&T customers whose contracts expire this the year have been made eligible for an iPhone 4 upgrade (previously you needed to have 3 months or less remaining on your contract).
There are no surprises in Germany, too. T-Mobile remains the only operator there to have a contract with Apple. If you feel for the iPhone 4 and T-Mobile's tariff's seem fair enough to you, you can pre-order your new phone next Tuesday. Again T-Mobile, but this time in the Netherlands, will offer its customers Apple's iPhone 4. There is no word on availability date or price tag.
As for Japan, if you live there, you'll have to wait for 24 June to come. This is the day when the iPhone 4 will show up in SoftBank's stores.
The guys in France have a much wider choice of carriers: Orange, SFR, and Bouygues Telecom are all rumored to be offering the Apple smartphone. So far, Orange is the only company to officially confirm that, but official statements from the other carriers are expected soon.
There are three companies currently serving iPhones in the UK and all three of them will get the upcoming iPhone 4: O2, Orange and Vodafone. But guess what! Surprise, surprise: T-Mobile UK customers will get to enjoy the iPhone 4 as well.
When will the iPhone 4 be going to have the carrier U.S. Cellular?
