Yesterday, Apple announced the iPhone 3GS. It looks exactly the same as the iPhone 3G, but the guts have been overhauled to make it twice as fast in nearly all respects. Interestingly, Apple is keeping the original iPhone 3G around at the $99 price. Pundits are saying that this is a huge move by Apple to attack the low end of the market. Is it really? If you check Apple’s website, you need to dig around to find the product page for the original iPhone 3G. It’s not very prominently featured. I believe they are just selling this until they run out inventory or until a couple manufacturing contracts expire. Once the inventory dries up, perhaps after the holiday season, I’m guessing the only option will be an iPhone 3G S until WWDC 2010. Apple doesn’t want to play in the $99 space any longer than they need to. What do you think? Am I right or wrong? Leave a comment!
