    The new version of the Apple iPhone is set to be sold at significantly lower prices than the existing one, in a tacit acknowledgement by the US technology company that its previous sales strategy was not sustainable. Apple has bowed to pressure from mobile phone operators and agreed they can subsidise the latest iPhone, expected to be unveiled by Steve Jobs, Appleā€™s chief executive, on Monday.

    While the confirmation of the cheaper, subsidized iPhone comes from their own undoubtedly rock solid sources, they don't have specific numbers from them and point to squishy analysts on how much cheaper it'll be, such as speculation it'll be $199 in the US, with a $200 subsidy from AT&T. Either way, AT&T will definitely be bearing some of the costs for us: "Apple has accepted that the new iPhone should be subsidised in the US and western Europe by the mobile operators who sell it to consumers, according to people familiar with the matter."

    this is going to be sh*t, reason being is becasue i have the iPhone, and i have the enV. obviously my parents arent going to pay monthly for two carriers, thus being when i want the new iphone and have my 200 bucks ready, il go to the att store and it will most likey require a contract, so now i can use my gophone sim with unltd text and media net

    200$ no way, thats complete bullsh*t, apple will probably be LOSING money, i think what will probably happen is the old iphone prices will drop, and the new ones will cost like the ones do now. (399$, 499$)

    Apple loses nothing, they still get there money. ATT makes more because they sell more iPhones with contracts. I told everyone this was going to be the case last month.
