Barf... The one element that helped the 3G/3GS look and feel expensive were the metal nobs and switches. If Apple puts plastic buttons on this phone it will devalue the brand. Then it's really gonna look like Tim Cook sold out and doesn't care about Steve's values.
I could see Apple re-releasing the 17 inch MacBook Pro, if the bezels are reduced in the next model.   Honestly I don't know why the bezel is so big around the MacBook line. With the iPad's bezel getting trimmed I could see the same happening with the MacBooks.   A 17 inch could end up the same size as the current 15 inch and all other sizes would shrink comparably.
  The Chinese government partially owns China Mobile. I believe the other telecoms operate more independently of the government.
    I agree, $350 seems like more of a sweet spot for an unlocked iPhone.   But all the data is pointing to a $450 starting price. Although that's cheaper than the iPhone 5, will it be cheap enough?
  Even the vendors are losing money!
That's great numbers for the 5 on T-Mobile then!I think at AT&T and Verizon the 5 only makes up half of their iPhone shipments (25% of total smartphone shipments?), with the 4 and 4S making up the other half.

With every story and report, the upcoming plastic phone is looking like it WON'T be low cost. More like a midrange phone that'll be the same price as the iPhone 4. I guess €400 isn't so bad for a new iPhone. It's just hard to imagine paying $450 for a plastic iPhone, but at least it'll have the same specs as the iPhone 5. That means it should be better than pretty much every other smart phone available for the price.
You're over dramatizing the situation.Apple's market share is still growing in most parts of the world even with the higher price of their devices.The necessity for a bigger screen is overrated.Most of the Android phones that are outselling the iPhone are actually smaller cheaper devices. That means that the biggest selling "feature" for those phones is the price.The iPhone still handily outsells every 5 inch Android phone. Nothing has changed there.What's more important...
LOLWas that "department store" a dollar general?Sounds like people with no class.
