Three, Ireland’s largest high speed network, will present one of the first iPhone 5 handsets to one of it’s customers at their Grafton Street store at 8am tomorrow (Sept 28th) as the much sought after handset becomes available in the Republic of Ireland. The new iPhone 5 has been available for pre-order from Three since Friday September 21st and there has been a phenomenal response from customers who have signed up to register for and pre-order the latest handset from Apple.

iPhone 5 will be available for a suggested retail price of €149 for the 16GB model, €249 for the 32GB model and from €199 for the 64GB model online on Three.ie and in selected Three stores nationwide. Due to limited stock, Three are encouraging those interested in snapping up the new iPhone 5 to get pre-ordering in store or on Three.ie to avoid disappointment.

iPhone 5 is the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever, completely redesigned to feature a stunning new 4-inch Retina display; an Apple-designed A6 chip for blazing fast performance; and ultrafast wireless technology—all while delivering even better battery life. iPhone 5 comes with iOS 6, the world’s most advanced mobile operating system with over 200 new features including: the all new Maps app with Apple-designed cartography and turn-by-turn navigation; Facebook integration; Passbook organization and even more Siri features and languages.

“Three are very excited to be bringing the much awaited iPhone 5 to our customers with this early store opening. We have seen a great amount of interest from our customers for this handset already and we’re expecting Apple’s new iPhone 5 to fly off our shelves, particularly when we’re offering ‘All You Can Eat’ data which basically allows people to surf and use their smartphone to their hearts content without worrying about running up a colossal phone bill.” said Elaine Carey, Sales and Marketing Director at Three.

Three is the only network to offer ‘All You Can Eat’ data on all of its smartphone plans allowing customers to surf for free – however much data customers use, there are no additional charges with Three. Three’s ‘All You Can Eat’ data offer will enable iPhone 5 customers to maximise some of the phones impressive features without the worry of racking up a huge data bill.

3Stores on Grafton Street, Henry Street, Dundrum, Cork & Limerick will open from 8am and will stock the iPhone 5. Other selected 3Stores will stock the iPhone 5 to cater for customers that have pre-ordered in the last week.
