Well if this is true I'd luke a newer, more expensive model too so I can set myself apart (yeah I know it's crazy).
Seriously Steve, give me an "iPhone Pro"

You guys really sound like some elitist apple fanboys right now. Apple created the phone for it to 1) be profitable, and 2) eat up as much market share as they possibly can. I'm guessing maybe you think you're coolness will be threatened if it becomes a mass market device or something (which it pretty much already is)?
The more market share apple gets, the more competition there will be from RIM, Moto, LG, Google, Nokia, and every other handset maker to beat apple at it's own game and create the next sensation in mobile phones (much like Moto did with the RAZR and Apple has done with the iPhone).

You're right and I support moves that help make Apple's phone business more profitable and put it in more people's hands because it truely is the best phone around.
However I do like having unique and better things than everyone else. That's why I theme but eventually I'll feel less special (again, I do admit this is crazy) as more people get my phone. That's a problem with many devices and it's why I think Apple should introduce a more powerful, higher grade, premium phone at the older price points. That way both of my wants are satisfied.

4 gig on board, bit small for an iPhone if you ask me, the iPhone should have an external memory slot!!!!
When will Apple release a limited edition of the iPhone such as one signed by Guns N' Roses or Metallica!!!!!!!

HONESTLY...all i ask for is COLOR OPTIONS...sell soemthin besides white and black...wheres blue, green, red, yellow, pink, purple, all their ipod colors...that would boost sells a lot i think...and would give people a sense of "yours is just regular black, mines BLUE" attitude (which we would all love, dont lie..)
but on the other had as much as i dont want others to have "my" phone...it benefits with the apps...more people have the phone then the more people you can network with over the apps which is somethin i love to do...
and if you wanna shovel out 100-200 more for ya phone you can get ya phone completely painted by color ware...and they still give you a warrenty on it! but i wouldnt pay lmao...but its an option if you want a "special" iphone

I really thought that since the 3G is much more targetted as a consumer device that they wouldve introduced colors (notice that the more "pro" Apple products become the fewerr customization options there are). Especially since the backing is all plastic.

what ever happened about that rumored "DEEP RED 4GB" iPhone?...anyone else hear anything about that or have i just mnissed out on somethin?

iPhone, officially the new Razr."Spaceships don't come equipped with rear view mirrors..." -Andre Benjamin the 3000th

This is apples way of cornering the smartphone market, then i think they should do the same with personal computers. Corner trhe market start selling $500 Macbook pros at supermarkets!!

Wow I never knew the people here and over at Mac Rumors measure their status by the phone they carry.
As I said in Mac Rumors, The razr didn't really offer anything more than any other phone on the market other than a sleek form factor.
Maybe the phones offered at WalMart should be it own distinct color so those people can be readily spotted, taunted, insulted or whatever else is supposed to be done to them.
How many here started out on a 4Gb?
How much did you pay for your 4Gb? Bet is was a little more than $99
Just my thoughts

Seeing as I listen to a lot of music and game a lot, I think 4gb is no future proof.
Heck I think 8gb is not enough for myself.
btw I heard that they are bringing it to the Dominican Republic soon.

Its cool that wall-mart might sell for $100, it should be affordable for most people. However, people who pays premium should have better options than storage amount.
12-04-2008, 05:48 PM #36
this is going to be dumb i mean i understand hey its a 4 gig plus its cheap but apple went a little over there heads with this one >.>

Who cares? It opens the phone up to be bought by more people. I swear, now we got phone yuppies. These must be the same people who look at my 1st gen and think "Oh, you must have been too broke to get the 3G", not that I kept my 1st gen because im on TMobile.
I just bought my gf a 4GB because she can care less about a ton of apps and thousands of MP3s and Videos. She's jailbroken and unlocked, but the only time she wants a game is when she sees me playing something on my phone. She can care less about VNC, NES Roms, connecting via terminal, etc. She just likes having a touchscreen phone that has pink icons
Hell, i even started on a 4GB that I paid $400 for! When I could afford one with a larger HD after I decided I needed one, i saved and bought one. I dont see a problem with someone having the same phone that Ive already owned for more than 16 months

this would be my backup if i ever broke my white one if this actually happened but me personally i dont like the thought of apple (iphone )teaming up with walmart call me stuck but wateva

My friend works in the electronics dept at walmart and he said that they were getting iphones and training would start soon. He also said they signed a contract with apple saying that there had to be a sales person there the whole time and if not they have to shut the whole phone section down lol. He didnt say anything about a 4gig though. But i understand what everyone is saying about everyone running around with iphones and that does kinda stink but oh well... im sure in a couple years another phone will come out that will be better than the iphone as much as i dont like to say it. One good side about the $99 iphone is that more developers can get thier hands on them to mod them without having to worry about bricking them.
