The much-hyped release of the new iPhone 4G should be with us in Ireland by mid-June ; and although rumours of early July still persist … we will have to wait and see what happens!
iPhone 4G NEWS UPDATE – Apparently the date is now July for Ireland and the UK with the prices being roughly the same as current 16 – 32Gb versions.
The new 4G iPhone will sell in the US first and the date of June 7th was being mentioned as the possible release date. I don’t think that will happen though.
On the back of the iPad release, the new iPhone 4G should have a huge amount of interest in Ireland & UK. Keep an eye on Vodafone, O2, 3 Mobile and Orange who will be pushing to be the first in Ireland & Uk to sell the new iPhone 4G.
The feature list on the new iPhone is becoming clearer, apparently coming with ;
- a 5 MegaPixel camera
- possibly including multitasking of iPhone apps
- sleeker body design
- sturdier construction
- clearer picture with a high definition capability
- a 3.5 inch TFT touch-sensitive screen
- available in 64GB & 80GB storage
- built in half gig of RAM.
For those with the 3Gs iPhone there should be an OS upgrade also, which should give you some of the features of the new iPhone.
Note : the new 4G iPhone is actually a reference to 4th Generation and does not reflect a transition from a 3G network to a 4G network.
This post is actually an old post and is held here on shanemcdonald.ie for reference and for retro purposes. I was one of the people who started using the iPhone in Ireland around the time of the iPhone 4 and I have remained a loyal apple customer ever since. I upgraded my PC in 2011 to a Mac and in 2021 I got a MacBook Pro which has served me well on international projects over the past 2 years. The iPhone is (at the time of writing this post) on iOS17.1 and the latest model is the iPhone 15 Pro which is quite expensive compared to the iPhone 4.
