MTN has released its contract prices for the iPhone 4S, available from today (16 December 2011) at certain MTN shops (list below). The iPhone 4S will be available starting from R499 pm (MTN 200) for the 16 GB model, R649 pm (MTN 350) for the 32 GB model and R819 pm (MTN 500) for the 64 GB model. iPhone 4S packages include 250 MB free data per month for 24 months.
The old iPhone 4 will be on offer for R269 pm (MTN 100) for an 8 GB model, with the same price per month for the iPhone 3GS. 
So what's new?
The new iPhone 4S is virtually indistinguishable from their current iPhone 4 model in terms of design, as it boasts the same slim glass and stainless steel look of the outgoing device. It also features the same 3.5" (640 x 960, 326 ppi) Retina Display as the current iPhone. 

Apple’s iPhone 4S features a dual-core 1 GHz A5 processor (the same one doing duty in the iPad 2), with the Cupertino-based tech outfit claiming that this processor is up to two times faster than the one utilised in the single core 1 GHz chip of the iPhone 4. The company also stated that the system-on-a-chip is up to seven times better when it comes to graphics. 

It’s not only the processing power that has received a boost in performance though, as Cupertino also enhanced the stainless steel external, dual-antenna design of the iPhone 4. According to Apple, the iPhone 4S is the first phone to intelligently switch between two antennas to send and receive data, allowing it to support twice the download speed with HSDPA (up to 14.4 Mbps).
A word from MTN
Says Brian Gouldie, MTN South Africa’s Chief Sales Executive, "MTN’s offer of this much-sought after handset speaks to the company’s ongoing commitment to provide its customers with the latest and cutting edge devices and services.”
“MTN remains confident that the substantial investment it has made in its network will ensure that its subscribers optimally and seamlessly tap into the myriad of exciting applications that the iPhone 4S provides,” concludes Gouldie.
Customers can visit the MTN website for details on selected MTN “launch stores”, as well as full pricing.
