Phone seller pre-peddles white iPhone 4 for UNDER A GRAND!
Free unicorn when you buy five or more
A UK phone sales house has advertised white iPhone 4s, along with a cracking £919 price tag.
As far as Apple's product range goes, the white iPhone 4 is somewhere between the Unicorn and the lost Ninth legion. We can't be sure if it's disappeared or never existed in the first place.
However, if the Expansys website is anything to go by, a crisp cool white iPhone 4 can be yours for a crisp cool £919.99. Or £766.66 excluding VAT. It'll even give you a discount - if you buy five or more.
The same price applies to both the 16GB and 32GB versions - which are both supplied network unlocked.
You'll have to wait, though, as Expansys doesn't actually have the product in stock right now.
We called Expansys to ask them where they'd obtained their stock, and their pricing strategy. We haven't heard back just yet.
Expansys charges £779.99 for the 32GB black iPhone 4, and £659.99 for its 16GB counterpart. But that's understandable. After all, we know they exist. ®
800 squid for a phone
Can you imagine if you told people 5 years ago that in the future there'd be people paying this much for a cell phone?
Can you imagine explaining it to them in more detail?
Okay, so you (Future You, FU) have gone back in time and are explaining it to your past self (PU), who's just recoiled at the thought of spending that much on a phone.
(FU) "But... but... it'll be world beating! It's got a screen that you touch rather than buttons! And 3G/HSDPA! And it can make like phone calls, but with VIDEO instead of just voice! It can even view PROPER internet pages rather than that cut down WAP-crap! And it plays videos and music and everything!"
(PU) "Oh, you got an HTC Hermes then? Christ, you were ripped off- they're only like £450 new!"
(FU) "Yes, but it's in 2011! So it's... well, faster. And white."
(PU)"Aren't these things supposed to get cheaper AND faster as time goes on?"
(FU)"Yeah, but no, but yeah..."
(PU)"Ha! Just like the current TV series! Let me just fire up my native Youtube client so I can find a clip..."
I'm off to buy a shed load of black ones and a tin of white paint!
