This is as fresh as fresh can get.
Totally slamming malicious rumors spreading online and in the press that Smart won't be able to deliver iPhone 4S as scheduled, Smart Communications released an official statement via Twitter and Facebook a while ago confirming that the company will offer the iPhone 4S to customers in the Philippines beginning December 16, 2011 -- as promised.
"Contrary to rumours that were spread in the press and online, we shall start selling iPhone 4S as scheduled, on the 16th," said Smart Public Affairs Head Ramon R. Isberto.
"We suggest that interested persons sign up in our website, which has already received numerous reservations, so that they can enjoy using the iPhone 4S in the country's best cellular network," he added.
iPhone 4S will be available for both postpaid and prepaid subscribers in Smart's retail stores across the country on that date. The phones can also be pre-ordered online at smart.com.ph/iphone4s. All three variants -- the 16GB, for the 32GB, and 64GB models -- will be offered.
I'm currently doing my best to get insider info on iPhone 4S pricing details from both Globe Telecom and Smart Communications. While we're all awaiting updates, you might want to learn more about Apple iPhone 4S via the link.
