Welcome to another world of shiny plastic.
Pssst, Samsung? Apple is copying you this time.
AnonD-44087, 03 Jun 2013this iPhone is so cheap that they even didnt put the apple logo on it :PThat's correct.
Even Apple dont want their logo attached to something from the dark ages..
i would be careful apple unless you want a battle for your phone looking exactly the same as a lumia 620 lol
this iPhone is so cheap that they even didnt put the apple logo on it :P
AnonD-60243, 03 Jun 2013Why not just buy an iphone 3gs or 4?Why buy old shit when you can buy something hopefully better?
The iphone 3G is back. This changes everything again.
Welcome to 2008.
Shaggy, 03 Jun 2013First of all this is all still a RUMOR. If Apple decides to release this cheap iPhone, I'm gue... moreyour theory is totally reasonable but i would have to disagree, and the fact is this, apple is the number 1 in smartphones, just ahead of the s4 and s3, but samsung is Hundreds of billions in front in terms of overall sales, and them figures are rising, FAST, apple will no doubt realize that there is a market for budget phones, even in the developed world, i work in a phone store in the uk and budget phones sell just as much as high end smartphones, they just do not generate the revenue a superphone can, apple will have also seen from such products as the iPad mini that demand will no doubt be there for any apple product, regardless of its build, its quality, its software and so on, it will also not be a BUDGET phone in any sense, i reckon it would have hardware similar to that of the 4 or 4s, and be priced close to the £300, which while cheap compared to iphone 5/5s, will probably be twice it's competitors prices for hardware that is dated, ipad mini was expected to be a cheap tablet, to take on kindles and such, it was WAY higher then these, yet it sold blindly. steve jobs would never have released and iPad mini, or a budget iPhone, or other products no doubt, but that time has gone and apple will need to rethink its strategy if it is to hold on, no company can stay on top forever, just look at nokia, but its how they company adapts that will dictate the length of its stay on top
ramur, 03 Jun 2013it is made in china, low quality phone. shud we trust this gossip..All iPhones are made in china... Foxconn...
Also all iPhones are cheaply made just apple boost the price.
come on apple, a made in china products should be not more than $200
kish batman, 03 Jun 2013Im sure apple is not launching such a cheap and horrible looking phoneapple has always had a horrible looking phone :)
"we wont make any phone larger than 3.5"
"we wont make 7 inch tablet cause it will fail"
"we wont make cheap iphone because it is premium"
First of all this is all still a RUMOR. If Apple decides to release this cheap iPhone, I'm guessing it will only be available in certain regions in the world. It's most likely made to compete with low-end droids in "developing markets". We in the west will still only have the high-end iPhone. Is that a reasonable theory?
