Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the release of the new version of the Apple iPhone – iPhone 5 – in a press event held in San Francisco, California. With an updated processor, longer four-inch screen and running the new iOS 6 system, the new iPhone will bring new LTE speeds to the iPhone.
As with any Apple product release, anticipation is and will be high for the iPhone 5 and you'll see lines forming from many cell phone retailers on launch day, just to be the first to have the new iDevice in their hands. The new iPhone 5 will come in three capacity sizes – 16GB, 32GB and 64GB for $199, $299 and $399 respectively. The iPhone 4S will now sell for $99 while the iPhone 4, the now eldest phone available will have an 8GB model free on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon networks.
Babylon Village's technology lovers should have no fear – there's plenty of stores to buy the new iPhone come September 21st.
RadioShack in West Babylon at the Great South Bay Shopping Center will be selling the newest models on launch day. RadioShack normally opens at 9 a.m. on Friday mornings.
RadioShack has a second location in North Babylon at Sunset Plaza. The store also opens at 9 a.m.
AT&T has a retail store across the roadway at 704 Montauk Highway and will sell the new device along with all previous incarnations listed. Please note AT&T will only sell phones to link with their network. AT&T opens at 11 a.m. on Friday mornings.
Unfortunately, the Sprint Premier Store in Babylon Village, which would have carried a product like this, has closed up and the MetroPCS store does not carry the iPhone on its network.
