    Default Are Apple Worried......

    Interesting read, Not bad for a company that has been quiet for 3 years ....

    Apple plans iPhone 3GS price cut to tackle Motorola Droid


    Is the Droid giving Apple a pre-Christmas squeaky bum?



    Apple may be planning a pre-Christmas iPhone 3GS price cut, to just 99 dollars in the US, in a bid to stay ahead of the Motorola Droid Android handset which has captured the imagination at an important time in smartphone land.

    According to reports, AT&T, which holds the exclusive rights to sell the iPhone in the States, is weighing up the option, in order to stave off an unexpected bout of Motorola fever.

    The iPhone 3G 8GB is currently available for the same price stateside, but any new move would likely see the 3G model discontinued, or perhaps dropped even further in price.

    The Motorola Droid, available on the rival Verizon network has garnered great reviews and feedback in the United States, with the UK still eagerly awaiting the announcement of a UK release. T-Mobile and O2 have already confirmed they won't be selling the Droid (likely to be called the Milestone on UK shores), leaving Orange as the likely destination.

    The Droid is the first handset to run on Android 2.0 Eclair software and is a compact slider boasting a 5-megapixel camera, flash and 4x digital zoom. It follows the success of the DEXT handset that has allowed Motorola to regain a foothold in the mobile market.

    Despite the most intense smartphone competition ever known, Apple is unlikely to follow suit in the UK. Rival iPhone-carrying networks O2 and Orange seemingly unwilling to even compete with each other, let alone the rest of the market

    The iphone will continue to sell just because it's an iphone, it could be a chocolate house brick and it'd still sell.
    Just like ipod, there are better alternatives out there, but if you ain't got white earphones your nobody!

    if the release of the nokia n900 which is due out 15th of this month is delayed again i'm going for the iphone 3gs 32gb on an orange contract ....the only downside is to keep the monthly costs reasonable it will have to be a 24 month contract rather than 18

    As mentioned before the Iphone sells because its an Iphone, and for no other reason. Its outdated compared to all other offerings. The fact that you can only get apps from the app store is a right pain as far as im concerned. Its well and truely over priced. As for it "just working" out of the 5 Iphones people have at work every one has been back to Apple. Battery life is terrible and yes there are plenty of apps out there but most are gimicks.
