As Apple fans await the iPhone 5 announcement tomorrow morning, it seems that a lot of iPhone 4 users are listing them on Trademe in the wait of an upgrade.
I checked out trademe this morning and there are quite a number of recent listings of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s.
The interesting thing is, the bulk of the listings are sitting around the $200-$400 mark. With the new iPhone 5 looking like it wont be a lot different from the iPhone 4/4s, paying $500 for an iPhone 4 is a bargin isn’t it?
To be honest I could not buy an iPhone 4 knowing that a newer and slightly upgraded version is just around the corner, but for those who want to jump onto the iPhone wagon this is a pretty good time to do it.
The listings on trademe which are going for the most money at the moment are the ones which have been factory unlocked. This allows the buyer to put in a sim card from any provider (Telecom, 2degrees, Vodafone) and away they go. Buying an unlocked iPhone would be a lot easier.
When the iPhone 4s came out, a lot of buyers were disappointed because no one could tell that they had the new iPhone not the old one. The iPhone 5 is likely to be slightly taller than the iPhone 4/4s, it will be interesting to see whether this is the only physical difference. Not long now
