The price of the iPhone is taking a dip; given the availability of numerous other Android based phones that are coming into the market. Retailers have started to give away the iPhone 5 in an unlocked state with its price made more palatable to allow for a greater uptake. For those who are interested in the iPhone5 and live in areas that come under the umbrella of Apple.com, they can have the 16 GB version of the smartphone for $649.
The iPhone 5 with 16 GB memory is also available at eBay for $599. There is however some caution to be exercised when dealing with vendors on eBay. Their authenticity needs to be verified before committing to the transaction. There are other retailers not in the Apple.com circle that are offering the set at $550 or even less than that.
There are the network service providers also who are selling the iPhone5 at costs lower than before. Google Shopping service is another site where the gadget is available, once again at a bargain price. For those who like to buy a used iPhone 5 too there is the possibility of getting such a bargain deal. The cheaper iPhone 5 sets that are available in brand new condition at the retailers or network service provider’s sites needs to be checked for usability in the particular region of the customer as Negri Electronics have reported that the iPhone from T-Mobile site are only for international use.
What is unique in the iPhone 5 has been its lighting dock port that allows for charging and synching. The device with a 4 inch display is powered by a dual core processor. It has a back facing camera of 8 megapixel as well as a front facing Facetime camera for video chats.
The iPhone 5S is what Apple is expected to add to its line of products by this year end. The iPhone 5S ill have iOS 7, a new processor along with perhaps several color options to choose from.
