Apple iPhone 4 price cut hints at imminent iPhone 5 launch
The Apple iPhone 5 release date, supposedly set for September 2011, moves closer as US retailers prepare to drop the iPhone 4 price to make way for the fifth-generation Apple handset, according to reports
Tech blog Engadget has reported that “a pair of trusty tipsters” has revealed that both Radio Shack and Target in the US are to cut the iPhone 4 pricing in anticipation of the iPhone 5 arrival.
Cutting $30 from the price of the Apple blowers, leaked store signage has revealed the 16GB iPhone 4 is to drop to $169.99 (£104.59) whilst the 32GB offering is to be reduced to just $269.99 (£166.11). The prices, which will see the handsets come on a two-year AT&T contract have also suggested the 8GB iPhone 3GS is to be available for just $19.99.
Whilst most recent iPhone 5 rumours have suggested the mooted handset is to land in September with a 1GHz dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel camera a report yesterday suggested the iPhone 5 release date will actually be in October. No iPhone 4 price drops have currently been reported for the UK.
