So it looks like Singapore has its very own new online mobile phone selling platform. The company called Bounce Mobile purports to add a price match component, quick transfers of funds as well as a courier pick up of the phone you intend on selling.
Based on a quick look at the website, the iPhone 5 32 gig is being bought at S$525 on Bounce Mobile, and as a matter of comparison, the price you can get on Mobilesquare is S$550. Whilst the Samsung Galaxy S3 is going at S$268 on Bounce, it is being bought at S$260 on Mobilesquare. All this really means is that this website brings an extra element of competition to the mobile phone selling and purchasing space, and it is still advisable to do your shopping around in order to know what is best for you and whether the convenience of receiving a direct transfer to your bank account as well as a courier service, is a benefit you find valuable to you.
This morning, Apple announced their newest iPhones and whilst this product has been leaked to the high heavens with almost every prediction being spot on.
The 5c is basically a cheap slightly improved version of the current iPhone 5 which is now discontinued.
The 5s comes with a new processor chip, supposedly better battery life and a much improved camera. Other new features include a thumbprint scanner for better security and a special processor that measures the movements of the phone, and other such data. Also significant is the transition to 64bit, which promises to make things even faster. All these announcements were anticipated and were pretty much predictable even without the massive leaks.
If you are a Singtel customer who wishes to renew his contract and get a new iPhone, the registration of interest page may be found http://www.singtel.com/iphoneroi
