Read this blog for news, availability and pricing for iPhone 5 in South Africa and Namibia.
MTC Namibia is finally offering iPhone 5 16GB in Namibia (12/03/12), once off pricing of N$ 11299.00 or the choose one of two contract package offers, the smart phone package for N$ 399 p/m with a once off fee of 5189.oo and smart phone plus package for N$749 p/m and a once off payment of N$ 2189.00. It is quite clear that iPhone 5 is quite the pricey toy of 2012, never the less I expect hundreds of Namibians to flock to MTC for these packages and probably have them sold out by the end of the year. I just dread to think how much the 32GB and 64GB units would go for
