Which mobile phone maker can claim to sell a two year old model at such high prices ? That's the power of Apple. See it and now feel it.

I don't agree that Apple now has phone in the midrange phone market with iPhone 3GS.

Midrange line the last years have very powerful phones. Apple are selling a low end phone (Iphone 3GS) at midrange pricing.

For under 300 unlocked you can get phones like LG Optimus 2X, SE Xperia Arc, HTC Desire S, Samsung Galaxy S, Motorola Defy. All of them have powerful CPU for midrange.

Who the hell will pay 369 for a 2 year old Iphone 3GS with the specsheet of 5 year old Nokia.

Apple and Nokia phones tend to lose their value harder then Samsung or other brands, both in the stores and on the street. Even an used 3G or 3GS is worth around 150-200 at phone dealers.

Apple now has devices in the free to high end range, on contract, and the prices are comparable to other unlocked high end Android phones. it will be harder and harder to just say no to iphone only because of price.

This is not a good price at all. Users need something new and update. The same design is not so attractive because many users expect something new, not old body with new brain. Anyway other products are more interesting and the price is not so expansive.
