The Apple iPhone 4S: not the iPhone 5

Apple's iPhone 4S launches this Friday 14 October and it hasn’t taken long for the telcos to react: Optus and Vodafone detailed pricing and plan information for the new iPhone over the weekend.

For full details on all the iPhone 4S's new features, read our iPhone 4S preview and check out our guide to the best upcoming smartphones in 2011.

Feature: Samsung Galaxy Nexus vs. Apple iPhone 4S

Optus will sell the iPhone 4S on its $49, $59 and $79 caps, along with its $99 Timeless extreme plan. The best deal seems to be the 32GB iPhone 4S, which is available on the $79 cap over 24 months with no extra monthly charges.

The new 64GB model iPhone 4S is only available without monthly charges on Optus' $99 Timeless extreme plan — if you want the highest capacity iPhone 4S on a cheaper plan, it will attract a monthly handset charge of $19 on the $49 cap ($68 per month), $15 on the $59 cap ($74 per month) and $7 on the $79 cap ($86 per month).

Optus will also sell the iPhone 4S on a range of 12 month plans, but naturally, these shorter plans incur higher handset charges per month.

Vodafone announced its iPhone 4S plans soon after Optus. Initially, Vodafone didn't reveal any 12 month contracts, but the telco sent out a seperate release detailing 12 month iPhone 4S plans.

Vodafone is selling the iPhone 4S on four of its regular cap plans ($29, $49, $59 and $79) and four infinite plans ($45, $65, $85 and $100) over 24 and 12 months. The infinite plans seem the best bet as all four of these plans include unlimited calls, SMS and MMS messages to any phone number in Australia. The difference in price only equates to the allocated data per month: 500MB, 2GB, 3GB and 4GB.

The 64GB iPhone 4S will not incur any monthly handset charges on the $100 Infinite plan, but will cost Vodafone customers an additional $5, $15 or $25 per month on the $85, $65 and $45 Infinite plans over 24 months, respectively.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
