    Makes sense. iPhone 3GS - free or nearly free with most providers. It's niche they have no need to fill with a new product platform design, kickoff and deployment. Coming sometime in the future - iPhone 4 for free or nearly free with most providers.

    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    Of course, it's in Apple's nature to have their products highly priced. That's how it's always been and that's how it will always be, but electronics are getting cheaper every day, you can buy a brand new laptop for $400 nowadays. Granted, it's plastic and cheap, but you can go out a buy a new one in 2 years, and still wind up paying less than you would have for a MBP.

    The same goes for Smart Phones, I got one recently for $60. Nothing extravagant, but I'm not locked into a data plan and if it gets dropped/smashed/dunked in a toilet etc. I'm not out a ton.

    The gap between Apple Products and "Cheap Electronics" is getting larger and larger. I think making a cheap iPhone would be a good move on Apple's part, but history tells us they'll do otherwise.

    I'm an Apple fan - iPhone & MBP - but I wouldn't mind a less expensive (cheaper priced?) device. I don't have all the money in the world to spend.

    Eventually these products will drop, it's not necessary to run out and buy the newest iPhone; there really hasn't been a big enough gap in iPhone technology for me to stay at current generation. I picked up an iPhone 4s for $99 last year, I saw a deal and took it. I also picked up a used Macbook Pro early 2011 on Amazon for $890. It has no problems and it's in pristine condition. Patience goes a long way.

    Don't see why they should release a cheaper iPhone version either. They should stick to the current strategy, offering the previous models at a lower rate for those who want to buy one.

    Seems like the statement was made a long time ago that they were not interested in racing to the bottom.
    I don't blame Apple for charging what they deem as a fair price for the product but at the same time I feel they should up the warranty to at least 2 years and if you purchase Apple Care that should be 4 years but thats just my opinion.
