The iPhone 4 continues its journey around the world, with both Mexico and Greece welcoming its release on Friday 27th August. With no fanfare from Apple this time, we’re not sure if the phone was released in any other countries too, so if you got the iPhone 4 where you live this weekend, let us know in the comments.
In Mexico, the iPhone 4 is available through Telcel and the 16GB model costs 9,379 pesos ($720/£460) prepaid or on a variety of tariffs including a 1,235 pesos ($95/£61) per month option where the 16GB is free. The 32GB is also available and costs 10,949 ($840/£540) on the prepaid tariff.
Greece gets the 16GB and 32GB iPhone 4 through Vodafone, where it costs €659 ($840/£540) and €779 ($990/£640) respectively, plus there are a wide range of tariffs available where the phone varies from €579 ($740/£470) to €200 ($250/£160) with a 12 month contract, with no option to get the phone for free, or from €490 ($620/£400) down to €30 ($38/£24) with an 18 month contract. Cosmote will also be offering the iPhone 4 for sale.
Although we can’t speak for Mexico, Greece has either given the iPhone 4 a lukewarm reception or there are plenty of devices to go around this time. When the 3G and the 3GS were released, a waiting list of at least two weeks was standard, although with the iPhone 4, an order placed on release day could be collected in-store where ‘there are plenty’ or couriered to your door in two days.
If you purchased your iPhone 4 this weekend, tell us about it in the comments.
