Tesco offers cheapest iPhone 4 prices

24 Jun 2010

As the Apple iPhone 4 goes on sale today Tesco in the UK is offering the cheapest prices, selling the 16GB version for UK£19 on the £45-per-month tariff.

Those interested in snapping up an iPhone 4 handset for a mere UK£19 should keep in mind that the commitment to £45 per month is tied into a two-year contract.

Tesco Mobile just announced its price plans yesterday and is one of six operators offering the iPhone 4 handset for sale including Vodafone, O3, Orange and T-Mobile and Three who have both have ‘iPhone 4 coming soon’ notices on their websites with no pricing revealed as of yet.

Those wishing to purchase the iPhone 4 without the contract will be paying UK£479 for the handset at Tesco Mobile, which is just a pound cheaper than Orange.

Meanwhile in Ireland Vodafone, O2 and Three will be selling the fourth generation smartphone from Apple but we will be waiting until some time in July as no exact date or pricing has been revealed yet.

Tesco Mobile Ireland will not be selling the iPhone 4 due to the fact that its network is 2G only and would not be able to support the smartphone. “We do hope to upgrade to 3G in the future,” said a Tesco Mobile Ireland spokesperson in response to a query from a Siliconrepublic reader.
