Apple iPhone announcements 'good news for the buyer'

The iPhone could be about to get cheaper

The news that more operators are to carry the Apple iPhone 3G S could be good for buyers - which could include those recycling mobile phones.

A spokeswoman for Mobile Choice, a publication which focuses on the latest developments in the portable telecommunications sector, said with more carriers set to stock the model, competition was likely to heat up.

Natasha Stokes, editor at the online and print news and review resource, said the desirability of the Apple iPhone 3G S was still high and therefore all of the parties involved would be keen to take advantage of this.

Commenting on the potential of new deals for the smartphone, she added O2 could see a number of its current users looking elsewhere if the price is right.

"I think this would depend on whether Orange offers the iPhone on better value contracts and if those prices are competitive enough to start a price war," Ms Stokes added.

The announcement by Orange on September 28th means the company now has the iPhone 3G among its catalogue of products in 28 countries.

So far, Vodafone has only advised that the device will become available in early 2010.
