Apple iPhone 4S 16GB in Black Currently Cheaper Than iPhone 4S White Edition

It is a well known fact that the demand for the latest iPhone 4S has well outstripped supply in many countries with over one million handsets sold in the first 24 hours of its release and a further 3 million over the next 48 hours.This now seem to be effecting the prices and deals on offer for the iPhone 4S 16GB in both its black and white colour schemes as different retailers and networks have varying stock levels of each model, this is best reflected in the latest news that the black edition iPhone 4S is currently has cheaper deals than those for the iPhone 4S in white.Although there is not a massive amount between the overall costs of the two colour schemes at £20 over the minimum term contract of 24 months the deals themselves are very different and offer significantly different volumes of inclusive data, minutes and text.The current cheapest deal for the iPhone 4S in black is offered on the Orange network at £25 per month on a tariff called 'Orange iPhone 25', this deal includes 250MB of internet usage, 75 minutes of calls and 125 text messages to use every month and demands an upfront cost of £169.99 for the black iPhone 4S phone.This equates to £769.99 over the minimum term contract period and as we mentioned the best deal for the iPhone 4S in white is £20 more at £789.99, however the tariff that the white edition is available on is a £20 per month package which only includes 100MB of inclusive data, 50 minutes of calls and 50 text messages with an upfront cost of £309.99 for the phone.As you can see from comparing these two iPhone 4S deals the black edition certainly offers far more minutes, text and data than the deal for the iPhone 4S in white meaning those consumers opting for the lighter coloured handset are not getting as good value for money.That said, neither of these deal are really well suited to the average smart phone user, this is proven by the best-selling deal for both colour schemes being offered by the 3 Mobile network, this includes a free iPhone 4S in either colour, 500 minutes of calls, 5000 text messages and a very generous 1GB of internet access every month for just £35 per month.In conclusion, whether opting for the white or the black edition of the new iPhone 4S consumers should always try to match their usage requirements or expect to end up paying far more for exceeding their monthly limits.
