I would be ok if apple made a budget iPhone and a higher end one if they would not keep the iPhone 4 or 4s around. And what ever replaces the 5 then discontinue the 5 because they have the budget iPhone to fill the. Mabey make the budget iPhone $100 and the high end one $199. Just my thoughts

Mac mini and the BMW 3-series are perfect examples.

These are overpriced, underperforming, fall-apart, disposable products that are made by accountants to milk brand equity in favour of the balance sheet.

I say again: short AAPL before this trinket hits the market. Anyone think that Steve would have wanted to compete with $0 downmarket low-rent Android pay-as-you-go handsets? NFW.

Nevermind the fact that the Nokia (and just about every other smartphone out there), looks an awful like the original iPhone.......

Of course it sold well. So would Apple-branded Vodka, Apple-branded thumb drives, or Apple-branded sex toys.

But Steve would have eaten his own feces before selling a cheap, low-resolution, low-spec, also-ran product like the iPad Mini.

Don't gut the brand to make the investors happy. Look what happened to PALM.

I'm looking forward to this, but what's with those colours??? They look like pre-school children's toys. I'm getting the feeling Apple doesn't want to use the vibrant yellow or orange or green to avoid clashing with Nokia, but this really looks like ****.

in this time, when other smartphone vendors are moving towards aluminum phones, i dont think moving back to plastic is a good idea. but it may prove a good option for the mid-range seekers, guys who always wanted an iphone but never had the resources to buy it.
