I don't think it will... Here's what I think... - Apple has too many iPhone 3Gs laying around. They want to get rid of them - It doesn't make sense for Apple to manufacture two phones at the same time - Apple doesn't want to be locked into starting their pricing at $99 next year So I'm thinking this will last until the new year, at the latest, and once all the phones are gone, they'll just have the 3G S available. What do you think? I wrote a quick post about it here for those who are interested. Then again, I could be completely wrong and the $99 phone will sell like hotcakes, and Apple will just make sure they always have a product at that price.
