When can I buy the iPhone 4 in Australia?

Apple has finally unveiled the next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 4. The question Australians are asking is: When is it coming Down Under?

Apple's iPhone 4 has been given a "late July" availability for an Australian launch.

Apple's iPhone 4 has been given a "late July" availability for an Australian launch.

Steve Jobs took the wraps off Apple's latest iPhone, the iPhone 4, at the Worldwide Developer Conference this morning, but Australians will have to wait until they can get their hands on the latest Apple gadget. While US consumers only have to wait until 24 June to get their hands on the iPhone 4, Aussies are left with hanging, with the smartphone listed as being available in "late July".

When will the iPhone 4 be available in Australia?

Because no firm date has been announced all we can do is speculate, but we expect the iPhone 4 Australian launch to follow the pattern of the iPhone 3GS' Down Under release — it will most likely launch on a Friday, perhaps 23 July or 30 July being the best bets. History suggests that Apple likes Friday for iPhone launches.

Where will I be able to buy the iPhone 4 from?

Although no further details of Australian availability have been announced, you can bet that the iPhone 4 will be available from all four major telcos in Australia — Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and 3. It should also be available on Virgin Mobile, just like the current iPhone 3GS.

Like the current iPhone, the iPhone 4 should also be sold outright through Apple's Retail Stores, including the newly opened Bondi Junction store, and through its online store.

How much will the iPhone 4 cost?

No Australian pricing details have been announced, but we expect the iPhone 4 to carry a similar price to the current iPhone 3GS, perhaps with a slight increase. Most people will sign up to a two-year contract for the iPhone 4, though no new plans or details have been revealed by any Australian telcos. In the US, the iPhone 4 will sell for US$199 for the 16GB model and US$299 for the 32GB model, with both versions available in black and white.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
