Would it be really dumb to buy an iphone this weekend - well get one on contract this weekend? If Steve Jobs does release a new phone this next week, when do people think it will get here?

It is recommended to hold of any iPhone purchase in June as WWDC will most likely be announcing iPhone 4/HD and the last rumour on when it should be available is about the 4th week of June. If anything from past experience with iPhone refreshes, the stocks are usually built-up enough for first-batch distribution around the world.

Just the matter of whether NZ is in that first-batch.

Yeah personally I don't think it would be the smartest move. Even if you didn't end up wanting the new version of the iPhone, the price of the 3GS will likely decrease anyway, just like what happened last year when the 3GS was introduced and the price of the 3G dropped.

So hold out until at least Tuesday morning NZ time when we'll all know what is happening and the timeframes involved.

The new iPhone will certainly be announced at WWDC on Monday (US time). Don't go buy one....

I personally have my doubts as to whether the new model will be immediately available in NZ considering the way the iPad release was staggered, but regardless of that I agree that it would be silly to buy an iPhone now unless you really need one.

No doubt, NZ will be one of the last to get the new iphone.

Would be worth the wait though. :)

Your decision of course..

They're cheaper as of today. So even holding off from last week will have saved you coin.

Have you not read anything today? We're getting it next month along with a bunch of other countries - we're part of the second rollout.

I think the OP was asking about buying a 'new' iPhone 3GS rather than 'the new' iPhone 3GS...
