A press release from Apple today here has at last put us Irish iPhone users thinking of upgrading to the 5s or the 5c out of our misery!

After making enquiries to all the Irish providers alas there are still no estimated pricings, however according to the Apple press release-

iPhone 5s comes in gold, silver or space gray for a suggested retail price of $199 (US) for the 16GB model, $299 (US) for the 32GB model and $399 (US) for the 64GB model. iPhone 5c comes in blue, green, pink, yellow and white for a suggested retail price of $99 (US) for the 16GB model and $199 (US) for the 32GB model. (for qualified customers!!)

As soon as I hear back from providers I will update as needed.
