So the iPhone 5 is now official. Big deal.
The real and most important question is – when will the iPhone 5 become available in the Philippines?
Checking out Apple’s full iPhone 5 press release is of little help in answering this question. There’s no mention of the Philippines there and when it could possibly be released in other countries aside from the ones already mentioned. It does, however, confirm that a Philippine iPhone 5 launch won’t be happening anytime this September.
What’s not stated there, though, that many sites have reported on, including 9to5Mac, is that Apple plans to make the iPhone 5 available in 100 countries on 240 carriers by December 2012. So if we’re lucky, it might just be a merry iPhone 5 Christmas for all of us.
As for local pricing, no idea yet how much Globe and SMART will price the new iPhone. But if the pricing of iPhone 4S in the Philippines is any indication as to what’s coming, SMART most probably will have the better prepaid deals for the iPhone 5.
But yeah, those are two big IFs there.
