iPhone 4 now on pre-order from Apple at £499

You can now place a pre-order for a sim-free iPhone 4 direct from the Apple site.

Although as we type, the pre-order page is currently down, possibly due to the amount of people rushing over to check it out.

At any rate, the damage is £499 for the fourth-gen piece of iPhone kit, with its improved display, HD video recording and multi-tasking goodness.

That’s for a 16GB model. The 32GB iPhone 4 will run you to £599. Let the rush to trade in old iPhones begin.

UK networks have yet to blink and announce their tariffs, but that should happen later today. The device will be carried by all the major players – O2, Vodafone, Orange, 3 and T-Mobile.

However, O2 has announced an upgrade offer (to the effect that you can buy your way out of your current iPhone contract for £20 per month remaining).

And yesterday Vodafone’s tariffs were leaked, as reported by Engadget Mobile and Geeky Gadgets. If those figures are correct, a free 16GB handset will run you to £45 per month with 1200 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of mobile Internet, on a two year contract.

If you prefer a cheaper option, you can gear down to £35 per month, and pay £89 for the phone with 600 minutes. That’s if these spilled tariffs are accurate – Vodafone says that the leaked page was a test affair, with unconfirmed details.

As soon as the networks start to release the specifics, we’ll post them up here.
