Dubai, December 11, 2011
UAE-based Etisalat has announced that the iPhone 4S is available for pre-order from Etisalat’s ‘More’ rewards website, which offers prepaid-package options on all three new devices – 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
In addition, customers will receive free 500MB data per month for the first three months, after which data will be available for Dh50 ($13.61), a statement from the telecommunications company said.
The iPhone 4S supports twice the download speed with HSDPA of up to 14.4 Mbps, and Etisalat’s iPhone 4S customers can enjoy the Etisalat HSPA+ network and the widest 3G network covering over 99 percent of the country’s populated area.
The smartphone is packed with new features including Apple's dual-core A5 chip for fast performance and stunning graphics, an all-new camera with advanced optics, full 1080p HD resolution video recording; and Siri(TM), an intelligent assistant that performs actions through voice command, the statement said.
With the launch of iPhone 4S also comes the launch of iOS 5, the world's most advanced mobile operating system with over 200 new features; and iCloud(R), a breakthrough set of free cloud services that work with iPhone, iPad(R), iPod touch(R), Mac(R) or PC to automatically and wirelessly store content in iCloud and push it to all devices.
The 4S has thin glass and a stainless steel design and is the first phone to switch between two antennae to send and receive. Apple's A5 chip delivers up to twice the processing power and up to seven times faster graphics than iPhone 4, all the while maintaining a battery life of up to 8 hours of 3G talk time, it said.
The new iPhone 4S is priced at Dh2,749 ($748.54) for 16GB, AED 3,149 for 32GB ($857.45) and Dh3,549 ($966.37) for 64 GB devices, the statement said.

The phones will be shipped and delivered to the desired location without any extra cost. The iPhone 4S postpaid packages will be available at the official commercial launch this month, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
