You want to buy iPhone but can’t decide whether buy iPhone 4 now, or wait for yet release iPhone 5? I think now is the best time to buy iPhone 4. Read on to find out the reasons.
1. iPhone 5 will be delayed [Rumor]
Apple iPhone 5 was expected to be announced during WWDC 2011 (June 6-10) but rumors say that it might be delayed, maybe till late September 2011 or 2012. The WWDC 2011 will be software only and no hardware announcement as in past years. (iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 were announced at WWDC.)
2. Cheaper iPhone 4 plans
In Malaysia, both two telcos (Maxis and DiGi) that offer iPhone 4, are now offering new discount for existing iPhone 4 plans. The cheapest Maxis iPhone 4 plan is RM70/month, and RM58/month for cheapest DiGi iPhone plan.
Plus, another Malaysia telco — Celcom will launch iPhone 4 in coming months, too. Competitive iPhone plans are expected.
Update (12 April 2011): Celcom iPhone 4 pre-register started.
3. No waiting time
iPhone 4 was selling like hot cake last year. One would need to wait for a month to get their unit. No more waiting! Now you can receive your iPhone 4 unit in 1 or 2 days, if not immediately.
4. No death grip
When iPhone 4 was newly released, people were concerning about the “death grip” problem. Many friends asked my opinion about iPhone 4 and thought it has many other problems too.
It has been almost a year now, and we do not hear anyone complaining about “death grip” anymore. As far as I see, every iPhone 4 owner is a happy owner now. No problem.
5. Tons of iPhone 4 accessories
Many iPhone 4 accessories are available in the market now, from iPhone 4 skins to batteries to car accessories. Because of the competitive market, you can now get the accessories at lower price.
[BONUS] 6. Because you want iPhone NOW!
If you are not living in USA, you probably have to wait for few months to have iPhone 5 available in your country. In 2012, maybe. If you want an iPhone now, why wait?
Apple would release new iPhone almost yearly. Do not wait. Yes, there’s always a better model. And, you will always in the “waiting loop”. Don’t wait! Grab it when you need/want it.
