AN AUSTRALIAN RETAILER has already started selling the Iphone 5 before worldwide preorders kickoff tomorrow, and is offering customers a $100 discount.
Australian retailer Kogan is selling SIM free models of the Iphone 5 from today, and is undercutting Apple's retail price by $100 or around £64 to us Brits. It's offering the 16GB model for $699, the 32GB model for $799 and the 64GB model at $899, with plans to ship the devices on 21 September.
"We've been working very hard here at Kogan to be the first retailer in the world to sell it, and can confirm that they are now available for our customers to order at unbelievable prices," said the Aussie phone shop.
Unfortunately, the retailer doesn't seem to be shipping outside of Australia, so we'll have to make do with Apple's pricing. Following last night's launch event, the firm revealed that the 16GB model will fetch £529, but it has yet to reveal pricing for the larger 32GB and 64GB models.
Although the phone was quickly snapped up by all UK networks, they aren't quick to reveal their pricing for the handset. However, Three has told us that it expects to reveal its tariffs later on today. µ
