Orange Uganda has introduced the latest phone from Apple on the market, the iPhone 4S.The iPhone 4S goes for Shs 2,399,000 for the 16GB model, Shs 2,699,000 for the 32GB model and Shs 3,099,000 for the 64GB model. The phone can be found in all Orange outlets. The phone comes packed with new features including Apple's dual-core A5 chip for fast performance and graphics; a new camera with advanced optics and full 1080p HD (High Definition) resolution video recording.

Iphone 4S comes with iOS 5, the world's most advanced mobile operating system with over 200 new features; and iCloud, an advanced storage system, among others. Importantly, iPhone 4S stands out from other iPhones because of its Siri service. Siri lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place phone calls, and more.

"By asking Siri to do things just by talking the way you talk, Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean, and even talks back. You talk to Siri as you would to a person," notes a press statement. Philippe Luxcey, Orange CEO said: "At Orange, it is always a pleasure to introduce a wide range of devices to our customers and not to forget the clear-cut bundles that go along with them.”

“It is also very important to note that what is before you today is the original iPhone as Orange is the only official distributor for iPhone in Uganda. So, customers are assured of a great device coupled with exceptional quality of service on the largest and fastest 3G+ network in Uganda."

According to EdouardBlondeau, Orange Uganda's Chief Strategy Officer, iPhone 4S demonstrates the world is moving closer to a phone that has no difference to a computer. With iPhone, Orange targets to tap into the market of companies that seek to equip their staff with the latest phones, which enable their staff to for example do a power point presentation.
