Default $100 price-cut on 16GB iPhone on the horizon; 8GB iPhone to bediscontinued soon?

I am all for Apple extending a bigger bang for the buck to new iPhone
users. Drop that price now Apple. Stay ahead of the competition where
almost no one has 16GB of fast memory built into their phone. They
have

$100 price-cut on 16GB iPhone on the horizon; 8GB iPhone to be
discontinued soon?
Posted by Will on Monday, February 11th, 2008 at 1:38 am under Rumors,
iPhone, Apple
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/02/11...comment-171203

In true Apple form, we're hearing through the grapevine that Apple may
be planning to slash prices on its iPhone handset again. This time,
the price-cut will be affecting the newly released 16GB iPhone and may
coincide with the discontinuation of the 8GB iPhone.

If you'll recall, Apple slashed the price of the 8GB iPhone some
months ago while discontinuing the 4GB iPhone, so this rumor sounds
right down Apple's alley.

You're probably right. Few people would want a 8GB iPhone when there is
a 16GB version.

If on track then why lower the price ? So they will be on track is why.

I have a 4GB, and don't need anything bigger. 90% of the iPhone users
out there today don't either.
Buy what you need. You seasoned computer folk should all know this.

Because most people are simply greedy. Whether they NEED it or not,
they simply WANT the newest and biggest.

Probably they want to lower inventory before they come out with the 3G
version rumored to be seen later this year...

Because the bottom is dropping out of prices in Flash Memory, and
Apple wants to retain market share and is passing along the savings,
and clearing the decks for its 3G iPhone due out in June.

There's more and more content out there to quickly fill up Gigs of
free space. Movies, TV shows, U-Tube, ebooks, etc.
and who doesnt have a digital camera anymore, and of course there's
a good camera in the iPhone.

Agreed. I have an 8GB and it is plenty of room.

We do know this. As this thread proves, there are two or three trolls
that like reading their own posts

With all due respect, why is this news? This happened almost immediately
upon the introduction of the iPhone, many months ago.

As for "they can't give them away", I think you're deluding yourself. This
is from a Sept 10, 2007 article:
http://www.marketwatch.com/news/stor...B38E4A676D2%7D.
Is yours a troll post? If so, I think I got caught. ;-)

It's hardly dumping if they are making record profits.

Dumping is selling at a loss, like Toshiba is doing with the HD-DVD
players.

Correction: For its 3G iPhone RUMOURED to be due our in June, or in
fact rumoured in some cases to be out "in the second quarter 2008".

Me. I don't have a digital camera, nor an iPod, nor a mobile phone
(iPhone is not available here yet, at least not officially).

Almost every company on the planet lowers the price of the "old model"
just before or when the "new model" arrives. It's standard business
practice to get rid of old stock still on shelves.

As I said before, "need" is a totally different concept to "want". It's
the greedy "want" that basically drives technology these days. The Mac
magazine I get interviews people about their Apple equipment, and it's
ridiculous how people (especially the "students") have multiple iPods -
the latest twit brags about having five of them! More money than sense,
or at least more credit than sense. :-\

Maybe not everyone in the world can be as fortunate as you were to be born
into your family with the ability to spend your parents' money.

Although the telephone, Internet and health systems do indeed make New
Zealand appear to be a third world (if not fourth world) country, it
claims to be higher up the chain than that.

Personally I simply have absolutely no use for a digital camera, iPod,
PDA or mobile phone. For the last one I'm waiting for the G3 iPhone to
be released here ... probably some stage in 2010 judging by when we got
an iTunes store, but at least by then I might actually need one. :-)

"Record profits" make the stock price INCREASE, not drop....

Touche'

http://finance.yahoo.com/q/bc?s=AAPL&t=3m
I direct your attention to the EIGHTY DOLLAR DROP in the stock price
since only January 1, 2008 during the iPhone's wonderful sales "record
profits"

$80 represents a 40% DROP in the price of Apple stock since Jan 1, 2008.

"Record Profits" my ***......something bad is happening.

http://finance.yahoo.com/q/it?s=AAPL
Now, I'd like to direct your attention to the forced reported stock
sales by the top Apple brass who know what's going on that YOU and Vic
don't.
Ignoring Al Gore's massive 600 shares for a moment before you start
laughing like I am, notice how FEW shares the other jokers at the top of
this dogpile actually own.

4-Jan-08 FORSTALL SCOTT J
Officer 12 Direct Statement of Ownership N/A
4-Jan-08 MANSFIELD ROBERT J
Officer 888 Direct Statement of Ownership N/A
4-Jan-08 IVE JONATHAN P
Officer 792 Direct Statement of Ownership N/A
4-Jan-08 JUNG ANDREA
Director 77 Direct Statement of Ownership N/A

If my company were making "RECORD PROFITS" and its outlook were just
wonderful, I'd take those $5 (Jobs' option price) to $20 option shares
and PILE THEM UP FOR GREAT PROFITS! The list goes back to '06 and they
CONTINUE to dump shares, not buying any more AT ALL since Jan 2007!
That's real faith in Apple's company health, isn't it?! THEY DON'T OWN
THEIR OWN COMPANY STOCK! Look who dumped it at the bottom of the list!

9-Mar-06 JOBS STEVEN P
Officer 4,573,553 Direct Disposition (Non Open Market) at $64.66
- $64.66 per share. $295,726,000

Why would anyone be so stupid as to dump 4.5M shares when the stock was
headed for $200/share?? He doesn't "need the money"! Doesn't make any
sense. Insiders dump stock when they THINK the company is going DOWN!

Most curious...most curious, indeed.... His deeds don't reflect the guy
in blue jeans and t-shirt hawking product on stage...

12-Feb-08 FADELL ANTHONY
Officer 25,000 Direct Sale at $128.32 - $128.56 per share.
$3,211,000
This guy must be one of the brighter bulbs in the box.....while it
continues to drop 2%/day.

Last Trade: 119.69
Trade Time: 4:00PM ET
Change: Down 2.56 (2.09%)
Prev Close: 122.25

See the point? What's wrong with Apple? Something ain't right!
