So, last week Tuesday, I got a call from an agency handling the MTN iPhone 4 launch. The call was pretty brief, but in summary was, standby we will be sending you details. Got the details, and here I am. After a year of punting the iPhone on my blog, today it all culminated in me receiving a complimentary iPhone4 courtesy of MTN.
About 10 or so people were invited to the pre-launch of the iPhone4 and received a brand new iPhone4 along with 500MB of data and R100 credit (prepaid) every month for the next year. There is NO obligation to talk about gift, but I think I will be talking a LOT more about the iPhone4 on my blog.
My first impressions. WOW. After playing with one last week(for 5 minutes), I wasn’t expecting to much, but I can honestly say I am impressed. The retina screen is honestly what stands out the most for me. Next it has to be the speed. I can honestly see a HUGE difference between the 3Gs and the iPhone4. I have tried, and tried again to replicate the antennagate issue, but so far have had ZERO success. Facetime also rocks. Tested it out with @CapeTown_Girl who was sitting next to me, and worked 100%. If you wanna give it a try pop me an email :0
So, that was the “pre-launch”. In about an hours time, we will be leaving for the VIP party at a secret venue, which apparently holds a couple more “surprises”. So far. So good :)
The most asked question so far seems to be around pricing. Haven’t had any official confirmation as yet, but found the following on Twitter:(none of this can be 100% confirmed, as soon as I have more info, I will let you know)
Will be doing a full review in the next couple of days on my thoughts.
Today has definitely been #iYoba !! :)
