    Think price wise it will stay the same? Or do you think I may be a bit cheaper?

    Not cheaper at least the same, possibly more like $249.

    I vote for $249 since the unsubsidized price increased $50 4 or 5 months ago. The iPhone is already the most expensive phone (unsubsidized) among the most popular smartphones. Carriers may not choose to eat that $50 for long.

    Seemed like this thread needed a poll, so I added one.

    I hope it's the same, no way am I paying over £500 for a phone.

    But now the $64,000 question...

    Will that be for 16GB or 32GB? Will they keep 16 & 32? Or go 32 & 64?

    There are popular studies that show selling electronics under $200 significantly increases sales. In fact, Apple quoted this in their 2008 WWDC Keynote while introducing the iPhone 3G for $199 (as opposed to the previous $399 price tag).

    So, with high confidence, the new iPhone will be $199.

    Agreed.

    And the iPhone 4S would be cheaper.

    Probably the same price. My date for upgrade is Nov. 25th. I'm just hoping Apple bumps up the upgrade date so I don't have to wait and extra month and a half or so. It will be very hard to resist. Anyone know if Apple is planning on bumping up the date again this year?

    Apple never bumped the dates. It's up to the carrier (ex. AT&T, Verizon).

    I don't think the price will increase. For all their products, only very rarely do the prices change with an update. They pretty much always remain the same price.

    I can make do with 16gb of memory, but I would prefer 32gb to be the base model. Personally I'm hoping they go with the 32/64gb set.

    Lol, nice.

    AU$999 - None of this "under contract" garbage price - the real unlocked price.

    That will be for the top of the range in terms of storage (64GB I would guess), 32GB, AU$899, and the iPhone 4, 8 or 16GB model for $599.
