July 30, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Apple iPhone 4 has today been released in 17 more countries across the globe including Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Spain. The phone is also being made available for sale through more carriers in the UK and Canada.

Apple has been reported to be in an expansion mode to include more consumers in its customer base for the iPhone 4. The smartphone was recently made available in its unlocked form for the first time in Canada, even though the pricing of the device was considered to be too high.

Apple is also making its latest phone available for sale through more carriers by including T-Mobile UK and 3 UK to its list of carriers. 3 UK has announced that it will offer the 16 GB version of the iPhone 4 free of charge along with a two year contract that covers 1 GB worth of data, 5000 text messages and 2000 minutes for a monthly price of £45. T-Mobile’s iPhone 4 tariffs have been fixed at £60 that includes 500 text messages and unlimited calling options. However, the carrier’s data plan for the iPhone 4 only allows for 500 MB of data download.

Virgin Mobile has also announced itself to be a carrier for the iPhone 4 in Canada by offering subsidized prices of $160 and $270 for the 16 GB and 32 GB models of the phone. Canadian carriers Bell and Roger had earlier announced their prices and plans for the iPhone 4 though Telus, which had earlier promised to sell the iPhone 4 from July 30, is yet to make an official statement regarding its pricing and tariffs for the phone.
