Did my eyes and ears just deceive me? But I’d swear that I just saw an ad on cable TV that offered anApple 3 GS iPhones for $49.
If this is true and I don’t doubt it. I have a couple of questions. The first is, (1) is this merely a competitive strategy to grow the base of iPhone ownership, or (2) are there just so many 3 GS iPhones left that they can afford to almost give them away? Either way this seems quite a blow to the many iPhone competitors out there that only thought they had to compete with a somewhat scarce iPhone 4 inventory. Now this! We should probably to see in a few short weeks what effect. if any, this will have on the market, with consumers and on the telecom industry in general. It may not even be a big deal. Without a doubt AT&T will likely be the biggest beneficiary attracting tons of new account sign ups and 2-year contracts.
