I agree.Samsung seems to have shipped more phones this quarter but still saw their profits shrink. That probably means the phones they did ship were cheap android feature phones.The same would happen to Apple if they release a $200 phone.I'd rather Apple keep their margins high and release their cheaper phone for $300-400 as well.
If Apple can get into that price bracket without sacrificing margins or quality, they could literally double or triple their global market share overnight.We'll see what trade offs Apple makes for the low cost phone. I'm hoping for something more polished than what we have seen.What if they had an iPhone 1ish design with colored aluminum and a white or colored plastic window on the bottom for the wireless radios?That might look more high end than these plastic so called...
I'm surprised they didn't add still photos with vintage filters...
Well this will be a waste if 30mil when Appke moves on and transforms the TV market.
Well Apple will have to make all new dedicated lines to produce these plastic phones so it's not like there is no added manufacturing cost for these. An with the colors there are different dye processes that add complexity.I agree the cost of production and simplicity would be better than the 5 but I still don't see the massive 30-40% reduction on the end price without other features or specs being reduced a bit. But we'll see what happens I guess.Tim Cook is the supply...
I'm more or less suggesting that switching to a plastic case alone won't reduce the price 30-40%.I'd rather Apple retain their margins than giving these plastic phones away.
How are they going to shave $150 off the price of the iPhone 5 assuming it would have been sold for $549 this year.I don't think a plastic case alone will be enough to justify the discount.
    Black with colors would also look like the Zune and Nokia smartphones.         No.         I honestly don't think this is the finished product, let alone the product we will see in a few months. I think Apple has many surprises up their sleeve with the so called low cost iPhone.
    The reason the renders don't look bad is because they look like metal, not plastic. The metallic shine on these renders looks like that of the iPod Touch, nothing like the plastic case leaks we keep seeing. So don't get your hopes up.
  I understand where he was coming from, but Apple doesn't sell the plain plastic MacBook anymore, and they haven't for 2 years. There would be no continuity in Apple selling a plastic iPhone as simply "iPhone."
