Landing alongside the new Apple iPhone 4S Apple has officially outed a cut price and reduced spec 8GB iPhone 4 to launch on October 14th with iOS 5 and a £429 price tag

Amidst the official unveiling of the all new Apple iPhone 4S and revamped iPod Touch and iPod Nano, Apple has confirmed it is to launch a cut priced reduced spec iPhone 4 device.

Tasked with making the iPhone range more accessible to a wider market the newly unveiled Apple iPhone 4 has dropped its storage capacity to just 8GB, down from the previous 16GB and 32GB offerings, with the price tag taking a similar cut.
