With the newly-introduced Apple iPhone 5 to become available for pre-orders at midnight Pacific on Friday, September 14, potential buyers of the eagerly-awaited smartphone can select from a number of options, in terms of capacity, color, and carrier.
The iPhone 5 will be available in three storage versions: 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB, the respective US cost of which will be $199, $299, and $399, with a two-year service contract from the selected carrier – AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint.
Though the 16GB version of the new iPhone will apparently be quite adequate for most smartphone users, the higher-storage models will be more attractive alternatives for users who carry all their music and video files everywhere.
So far as the color options for iPhone 5 are concerned, the smartphone will be available in white and silver, and black and slate versions.
The selection of a carrier will essentially depend on the needs on the users with regard to whether they are looking for connectivity, or whether “truly unlimited data" or sticking with their current unlimited plan is their prime requirement.
For those ‘connectivity’ freaks, the pervasive Verizon service, especially the carrier’s impressive LTE availability in 370 US cities, would be the most fetching choice; while AT&T will probably be the best carrier for those users who want to keep their unlimited plan going, at a flat payment rate; and Sprint will be a better choice for those who want to the avail the benefits of the carrier’s "truly unlimited data" option.
