Wired’s Charlie Sorrel wrote a Mythbuster-like article on why “Apple will not sell $100 iPhones, NetBook or Tablets”:http://blog.wired.com/gadgets/2008/12/why-apple-wont.html. We can always wish for cheaper iPhones or for many, a Tablet, but he has his points on why those won’t happen.
bq.. Myth: According to the entire internet, Apple will, just after Christmas, sell a 4GB, $100 iPhone through Walmart. The usual excuse is made: Apple needs to sell cheaper hardware in “these troubled times.”
Look at it this way: Apple’s PC market share continues to grow. The iPhone seems unstoppable. The new “expensive” unibody MacBooks are doing just fine. Why on earth would Apple undercut its own successful iPhone line with a cheap version? If it can sell as many $200 or even $300 iPhones as it likes, why sell a $100 one?
The 4GB part of this rumor irks, also. Name one other product line from Apple which has seen a memory decrease. You can’t. The fact that Apple already discontinued the 4GB iPhone because the sales were slow compared to the 8GB model should tell us something. Yes, there might be a 4GB, $100 iPhone. It will be announced at the exact same time as a 5GB, HDD iPod. With a physical clickwheel.
p. Read on at “Wired Blog”:http://blog.wired.com/gadgets/2008/12/why-apple-wont.html on the rest of the myth busting, and continue dreaming.
Lastly, a MTV shot completely on a jailbreaked iPhone called Newteknowledge by GOSHone. It would be even triply-awesome if it was edited on the iPhone…but in the mean time, enjoy.
