Update on 12 February 2011: Here are STC’s iPhone 4 prices.
Update (September 26 2010): Here are Mobily’s official iPhone 4 prices.
Apple’s policy with their hardware prices is simple: release new products at the same price as the previous generation. iPhone 3GS was sold at the same price of the iPhone 3G. The iPhone 4 will cost the same as the iPhone 3GS.
When Mobily launched the iPhone officially in Saudi Arabia in February 2009 the high end iPhone 3G 16GB was sold for 2,800SR for prepaid and 2,650SR for postpaid 99.
With the iPhone 3GS, Mobily sold the prepaid iPhone 3GS 32GB for 2,999SR (a small increase) but the postpaid 99 still cost 2,650SR.
We expect that the iPhone 4 from Mobily (and possibly Saudi Telecom Company or Zain) will be sold for 2,650SR with postpaid 99.
iPhone 4 will most likely be unlocked unless Apple changes the information in this support document.
Apple will not sell the different colored iPhones at different prices. Unlike Nokia that sold the black E75 for 400SR more than a red E75 at their official Saudi stores! I am not even sure which one was higher.
