Subsidized prices are by far the most significant and important. I don't care nor pay much attention to the unsubsidized retail price. It appears Apple doesn't either. Their marketing strategy for iPhone centers around U.S. carrier prices. The rest of the world just falls into line somewhere close to it. Usually more expensive in some way. Not great for marketing.
 So you want a 4" phone? Do you have a 5s yet? What more do you need than that? Apple COULD go all out and introduce a brand new line of iPhones. All new same physical design at 4", 4.7", and 5.5". Something new and incredibly powerful at 3 sizes.  No one would have any reason left to buy an Android phone. As if they had reason now.
I don't understand? Did I miss something? The iPhone 5s will drop by $100 to accommodate the incoming flagship model(s). No surprise there. The iPhone 5c will do its own thing. Either it stays around as just an $0 - 8 GB model....or they keep a 16 GB version priced at $49 or $99. Yeah it would be weird having a 16 GB 5c and 16 GB 5s at the same exact price...they probably won't do that. But recent pricing structures lead to believe its an option.
Its more than enough storage for the average user. The above average user pays the premium for more storage. Apple then makes lots o' money.
The iPhone 5s will stick around at 16 GB for $99. The iPhone 5c will live on as well at 8 GB for $0 and 16 for $99. iPhone 4.7" will start at 16 GB for $199 iPhone 5.5" will start at 16 GB fro $299.
Speak for yourself. I could care less.
Think logically. The new 4.7" phone will be $199 for 16 GB. There is no room for doubt or conjecture here. If Apple is ALSO making a 5.5", it a stands to reason that one would cost more, correct? This is where the $299 comes from.
Everyone calm down.   If Apple is truly making 2 models, at 4.7" and 5.5", then everyone would reasonably expect the subsidized prices of these two models with 16 GB capacities to start at $199 and $299, respectively.   When did any doubt about this enter anyone's mind?
The entire thing, completely half baked from start to finish....like all Amazon hardware & services. Meant only for those who don't know any better. Hence Gary Busey as the spokesman.
I don't know what they're thinking. Perhaps they think they do better if they have BRAND NEW products going into the 4th quarter for holiday shopping. But I know for myself, I have more wealth to spare on new Apple gadgets for the year when one comes out in March, another in June, another in October.
