 That would be for the Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch model lines.There is no way the Apple Watch Edition will be less than $1000.I'd expect it to start at about $2000.  Because raw gold is about $1200 an ounce.And yes, I'd expect Apple to have a trade-in program so users can upgrade every year or two(at a reduced cost.)
Welcome to the Race To The Bottom (tm). (No, not *that* bottom, Evilution. LOL.)
Meanwhile, Samsung's stock is at a 2-year low:   http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-09-23/samsung-at-two-year-low-lures-templeton-global-funds.html   Yup.  Samsung is almost in full-on panic mode.
Bullet?  No. Marshmallow?  Maybe.

 Apple should thank him for boosting AppleCare+ sales.$99 for two years, damage or destroy your iPhone up to two times, replace it for $79 (plus applicable tax) each time. AppleCare+.Never leave home without it.
Impending doom?  You want impending doom? See my post on the previous page.  With the links pointing to Samsung's stock losses, lack of product differentiation, steeper smartphone profitability declines than anticipated, etc. Try to spin that. [Update here's an excerpt from my previous post.] "Samsung at Two-Year Low Lures Templeton Global Funds"http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-09-23/samsung-at-two-year-low-lures-templeton-global-funds.html"... Samsung has lost 16...

Here's a plot for you:  "Samsung at Two-Year Low Lures Templeton Global Funds" http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-09-23/samsung-at-two-year-low-lures-templeton-global-funds.html So, yeah, the Edge and the Note 4 really didn't help Samsung's stock much.At all.
 But the circuit boards and connectors inside the phone won't necessarily spring back. Oh, and another good thing about plastic is that it burns really nicely.
