Apple’s new iPhone 4S, which is already out in many countries, is finally going to be released in Israel on the Dec 16 together with Brazil, Malaysia and other countries yet to receive the iPhone 4S. The official iPhone 4S price in Israel is not available yet. However, the iPhone 4S is already available in private stores for NIS 4,000 to 4,500.
Apple has officially authorised Israel’s 3 major iPhone distributors to begin marketing the iPhone 4S starting this Friday, December 16. This meant they can start selling the device right after midnight on Thursday.
Apple sets the launch date for the iPhone 4S in each country in batches. One of the first few countries to receive the iPhone 4S was USA, UK, Australia and Singapore. The cellular providers in each country are the ones which are authorised to sell the iPhone handset in Israel.
Israel’s major wireless providers selling the iPhone include Cellcom and Orange’s Partner. These providers can provide official Apple support services for the iPhone.
Cellcom will start selling the iPhone 4S at midnight online. The iPhone 4S price for Cellcom is not disclosed yet. But sources told us that ILS 4,284 (ILS 119 monthly for a 36 month contract) looks to be a reasonable price of the iPhone 4S 16GB. The 64GB iPhone 4S will cost ILS 5,560 (ILS 155 monthly for a 36 month contract) in Israel from Cellcom. Cellcom iPhone 4S subscribers will get a ILS 60 rebate if their monthly bill exceeds ILS 299. Those who buy the iPhone 4S online from Cellcom’s website will get a 10% discount.
As for Orange’s franchisee Partner Communication, they will be selling the iPhone 4S 16GB for ILS 4,644 (ILS 129 monthly for a 36 month contract).
The iPhone 4S 32GB will cost ILS 5,364 (ILS 149 monthly for a 36 month contract. Partner customers will get a ILS 39 to ILS 119 monthly discount depending on their subscriber plans. As for the iPhone 4 8GB, Partner will be sell it for ILS 4,140 or ILS 115 monthly for a 36 month contract.
For those planning to buy the iPhone 4S in Israel from other stores, DIY chain Home Center is selling the iPhone 4 at its hMobile centers for ILS 4,500. In fact, Home Center has been selling Apple’s iPhone 4S in Israel for some weeks now.
The official opening sale of Apple’s iPhone 4S in many countries have resulted in record long queues for the device like Singapore and Hong Kong. However, it is not common for cellular providers in Israel to launch the iPhone at midnight.
Reactions to the iPhone 4S launch were not as enthusiastic as the 20009 launch of the iPhone in Israel for which the companies kept their stores open throughout the night. It is yet to be seen how Israelis will react to the actual iPhone 4S launch on Dec 16 this week.
Other than enhanced iOS 5 features and upgraded hardware, the iPhone 4S’s claim to fame is its revolutionary voice-operated command system called Siri. Its advanced voice recognition capabilites enable iPhone 4S users to ask it questions and it will answer with relevant functions or information. However, all these Siri wonders are irrelevant to Hebrew speakers getting the iPhone 4S in Israel as Siri does not understand Hebrew.
