iPhone 4 in Qatar through Qatar Vodafone
Hmmm…Qatar Vodafone has announced that they’ll be bringing in iPhone 4 in Qatar.
Vodafone Qatar will launch the iPhone 4, the thinnest smartphone in the world with the highest resolution display ever built into a phone, in Qatar in the coming months. Information on pricing and points of sale will be available in due course, a Vodafone Qatar spokesperson said. The iPhone 4 will feature ‘FaceTime’ video conferencing that will use Wi-Fi only to perform. The iPhone 4 will also feature Apple’s A4 microprocessor, a 5 megapixel camera featuring HD video-recording, a front facing camera for FaceTime video conferencing.
Some questions though. Would these units be officially “unlocked iPhone 4“? How much would they cost? With them bringing in the iPhone 3Gs, it costs about $200 more than buying an officially unlocked iPhone in Hong Kong. Does this also mean that they’ll be bringing down the price of their iPhone 3Gs? The iPhone 3Gs 16GB is now selling for 2,999QR while the 32GB sells for 3,499QR.
When are they bringing the iPhone 4? Apple hasn’t announced release of the iPhone 4 in Qatar nor in other countries where they should be selling unlocked iPhones. Is this just a preemptive announcement from Vodafone?
