Recently we have had news of the ‘iPhone3,1’ being spotted in logs hinting towards an upcoming iPhone release but Eldar Murtazin, editor in chief of Mobile Review has recently tweeted:
“Foxconn received order for next generation iphone”
Fozconn work for Apple on iPods, Macs and iPhones and so if Apple keep to their mid-year cycle, then we should be seeing a new iPhone model next year which will be a major jump. Nothing else is really known yet but over the next few months we should find out more about the mysterious device.
As I spoke about before, Tesco said how they were hoping to release the iPhone 3GS before Christmas. Now the date has been set for December 14th, just in time for Christmas. Tesco gave some further details on their offerings of the iPhone. It has free unlimited 3G (fair use policy applies) and BT Openzone WiFi access, which is free for a year to Pay As You Go customers and for the life of your contract if your on Pay Monthly, the same as O2 offers.
The cheapest contract is £20 per month for their one-year contract, but that gets you only £60 calls and texts allowance and you have to pay £320 for the 16GB device itself. They also offer an unlimited calls and texts plan for £60 per month, cheaper than what Orange offer. Last of all they offer half-price calling to your favourite five numbers. The Pay As You Go costs will be the same as what O2 and Orange offer.
