or maybe people can't afford them anymore
Sales of Apple's iPhone are slowing as potential buyers await the long-rumored refresh of the popular smartphone. On Wednesday, AT&T released its financial results for the first quarter of 2009. Among the details of the report - which showed revenue to be essentially flat, year-on-year - was the news that iPhone activations …
I expect the latest phone to be $199 and $299, just like the current 3G model, and with 8 and 16GB of memory and the better camera and better battery life. Apple has a history of releasing the latest and greatest at the same price point of the current.
I also expect the existing 8GB 3G may become available at $129 marking a new price point. I also expect dramatically lowered plan pricing including an unimited plan (text, data, voice, everything) for somewhere just above $99 with 2 year contracts on the new models.
I also think Apple may have a new H2DP headset up it's sleve, some specific announcement on tethering support (hopefully inculded in the unlimited plan), voice activated features for the phone, and may introduce a larger "micro-tablet" iPhone with greatly improved capabilites somewhere about double the price of the top iPhone model.
i'd be surprised if it was just 10%
i think Apple a well aware that there's a recession, but they're equally aware that some of us will make the cuts in our yearly spending elsewhere (like food and heating) before we're prepared to consider not getting the latest model of iphone
mines the one with the RDF glow
