While dates for a China release are still up in the air, the iPhone 4 was recently launched just a short flight away in Hong Kong… and it turns out that, count our lucky stars, that may actually be the cheapest place to go to to get one!
This interesting infographic of iPhone 4 prices around the world (here’s a bigger version) clearly shows that Hong Kong has some of the cheapest around. Note: the graphic only shows iPhones that are unlocked – that’s why U.S. prices (much less than 400 euros) aren’t appearing.
A Hong Kong unlocked 16GB iPhone 4 will cost you 4,424RMB, while a 32GB one will just cost 5,217RMB. That’s much less than the 12,000RMB prices we were previously seeing. Plus, the jailbreak was released just three days ago!
Then again, word has it that our neighboring city of Hangzhou is filled with tech marts willing to sell you gray market iPhone 4s for around the 6000RMB mark – so, if you don’t want to take an airplane trip down to unrestricted internet and imported beers at the 7-11, then perhaps a train ride to your sexy new gadget instead?
