Remember when the iPhone first came out about a year ago? People waited in long lines to shell out some $600 for the device, while others reportedly paid up to three times as much on Ebay.
When Apple announced they were cutting the price by $200 a few months later, early adopters were furious. Their reaction prompted Steve Jobs to issue an open letter offering them a $100 store credit.
Now there’s this report from Business Week which claims AT&T is planning to offer a $200 subsidy for the iPhone 2.0, bringing the entry-level price down to about $199.
Now poor guys like me can seriously consider purchasing an iPhone while early adopters agonize over the fact they spent three times as much for an inferior version of the same product less than a year ago.
But hey, you sure were cool for a while. 😉
