3G iPhone to cost $199 from AT&T


3G iPhone

Get this - Fortune is saying that AT&T is going to be subsidizing the cost of the by $200, which would mean that you could get one of the new phones for $199 USD with a 2-year contract. Now, that isn’t as crazy as it seems, as they do this with just about every other phone that they offer. They just haven’t been doing it with the first iPhone. Now, to be clear, if you made the decision to buy the phone from an Store, you would be paying the full price.

Other tidbits in the Fortune article state that the new phone will be 2.5mm thinner than the current iPhone (which itself is 11.7mm thick), and that it will also include a chip. Pricing will be $399 for the 8GB version, and $499 for the 16GB model, before subsidies. As with all Apple rumors, we take this one with a grain of salt, but hey, it’s Fortune, right?

I’ve heard rumors that a price drop was coming on the current iphones on July 9th.
Has anyone heard about a price drop on the ipod touch?

I want one so badly, just waiting for my contract to expire from T-Mobile next month, I see that it’s cheaper this time around $199 is a good price can’t wait to get mine as soon it’s release.

Wow I actually haven’t heard about the iPhone being cheaper.. Grr.. It’s the second version it should be more expensive if anything! And nope, haven’t heard anything regarding the iPod touch.

If that is true that the 3g iphone is only $200 I am glad i have at&t;an i am very happy to be gettting one this month. Ive read that the ipod touch s going down in price.
