iPhone 4 Now $99 at Bell and Virgin Mobile
After TELUS dropped the iPhone 4's price to $99 no later than yesterday, Bell and Virgin Mobile made the same move today and announced that the iPhone 4 16GB is now available for purchase for only $99 with new three-year plans and on SuperTab, respectively.However, the 32GB variant retained the high price and is now available for $270 with a new three-year agreement.
Both carriers offer the black and white versions of the iPhone 4 and each are available for the same price.
All in all, it looks like Rogers is among the last major carriers in Canada that has yet to axe the iPhone 4's price.
Still, it won't come as a surprise if Rogers will cut the iPhone 4's price in the following few days, especially that rumors suggest that Apple plans to release the next-generation iPhone 5 some time this Fall, which forces the carrier to get rid of older models.
TELUS, Bell and Virgin Mobile are all clearing their iPhone 4 stocks and offer customers better deals to sweeten the wait for the next version of the smartphone.
The iPhone 4 is equipped with Apple's A4 chip and sports a 5-megapixel camera with autofocusm LED flash, LED video light and HD video recording capabilities.
Its famous 3.5-inch Retina display (LED-backlit IPS) supports 16 million colors, 640 x 960 pixels resolution and features scratch-resistant oleophobic surface, accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate, three-axis gyro sensor, as well as proximity sensor for auto turn-off.
Obviously the smartphone packs 512 MB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, which should be enough for standard users.
The device does feature a microSD card slot for memory expansion, hence the higher price for the 32GB model.
The phone supports HSDPA (7.2 Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76 Mbps), as well as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (Wi-Fi hotspot included) and 2.1 with A2DP connectivity.
