Everyone on twitter is going ape **** thinking the new iPhone will be priced at a whopping $800. That's insane... Apple would never do that because they would lose so much business.

Like the original iPad was supposed to be $1000 :rolleyes:

New iPhones will be the price of current iPhones.


As it was before, so it shall be now. ;)

Apple offers three capacities ranging from $199 - $399 (on-contract) and $649 - $849 (unlocked), which model are you referring to?:rolleyes: I think the prices will remain same as the existing ones.

Seeing as how the current phone costs $650, $750, and $850 I don't see what people are shocked about. So something leaked somewhere? For all we know that means all 3 prices will drop by $50 and only the highest one leaked.

What I find incredible there is that people truly don't understand the actual price of a non-subsidized smartphone.
OMG. People don't understand anything these days. Working retail, with mail-in-rebates, is MURDER. you'd think no one had a cell phone...

I have some family members who own iPhones and don't know how much they cost. its crazy. Had my uncle tell me replacing his phone was going to cost $1,100 WITH a contract renewal. :confused:

Have people forgotten that the first iPhone was released at $500 and $600 with no subsidized pricing available?

no way will it cost $1000, but no way will I ever buy a phone and extend contract again. If I get another iPhone will be direct from apple.

I too have seen the twitter shenanigans.

This happens every iDevice launch. Apple is the angel and the devil all in one nice little package.

If thats the 64GB or even a possible 128GB version I'd snap it up in a heartbeat

I think part of the problem is that the people complaining don't understand contract pricing. They think everyone is going to have to pay $800 not realizing the contract prices will stay the same as always.
