I don't think I will, unless it's design is unspeakable that I think will later hold some value.
The very first version of what? The cheap iphone model ?
Huh, what? It will be like any other phone. What will make it special that people will keep it sealed??
Why would I do anything that silly?
The only benefit to having a "sealed" unit is when the product in question is rare.
The whole point of the "iPhone 5C" will be that it's produced in mass quantities. If 50% of current iPhone sales are the iPhone 4/4S, then it's safe to assume that the 5C will have similar sales (and likely more).
It's not like we're talking about the Original iPhone: sold in few countries, expensive, constrained supply.
Silly move if anyone does. Just plain silly
Just like the Death of Superman first edition? Good luck with that. Out of all of them the 2G may retain some value if it's in mint condition, but they are still in active use, you'll have to wait ~20 years for any kind of return. Good to see other people's investment strategies though.
I cant speak for him/her, but I personally dont like plastic phones at all they all feel cheap to me.
I have an original iPhone that I'm holding on to. But there is no reason to keep a 5C (At least I can't think of one). What makes u think its special? Curious.
Why would you want to??
There's stilla lot of predictions that the "iPhone 5C" isn't even going to be available in American or possibly even European markets. Seems like it's destined for Asian markets. Beyond that, we haven't a clue where this thing will land. The idea of buying one and keeping it sealed in hopes that it be worth something is proposterous!
I would of rather bought another iPhone (first gen) back then and kept that sealed.
Agreed. There is very little chance that the buyer would make any money off of it.
If you keep it 30 years you might make a couple of hundred.
Have an iPhone 4 so I'll see.
Hopefully Apple also introduces a larger screen option.
The only way one of these in a sealed case would mean anything is if it was about 50 years from now. Then maybe you'd find someone who would go nuts over it.
My guess is it will be worth 2,893.89 after 20 years.....
Oh wait, was the question what would $300 be worth after 20 years of compound interest with a 12% return every year
I'd rather invest elsewhere than in a mass produced cellphone, hold it for many many years and hope it will make me a few dollars later in life. That's if the battery still functions after so long.
Glad to read your comments on this. It's comforting to know I got handed down a small transistor radio, mass produced, that fetched me $55K which was why I was curious.
That's like asking if your new Honda Civic will be worth a premium in the future.
5C has no intrinsic value not even bragging rights keep in mind that even the 1st iPhone sealed and unopened 6 years later isn't worth that much
This is just another model with variations. Don't waste your time and money
