Well this is getting interesting now. Vodafone New Zealand have now made available 35 iPhone 5′s to buy outright. But there is a catch. No matter how early you get to one of the midnight launch locations you are not guaranteed one. Instead the first 50 people at the stores will go into a draw to be able to buy one.
The allocation of the 35 handsets is split between the stores as follows:
2o in Auckland and 5 at the other 3 midnight launch locations in Wellington Christchurch and Dunedin.
The NZ telco’s have come under a bit of fire this week for not offering any buy outright iPhone 5′s for existing or prepay customers. Whilst this offer from Vodafone is less than ideal it’s much better than nothing.
Anything to add Telecom?
