    Unless snapdragon designs one specifically for them I can't see this happening.

    You know what Steve Jobs would say about this. His attitude of we tell the people what they want. Apple is a status symbol and a cheap iphone would destroy that, they should adopt a new design and a new name for any cheaper phone. well I am going to put on my budget armani suit and go to work, lol.

    Look at the iPad mini. It's cheaper but it's not by any means a crappy device. If Apple makes a cheaper iPhone it won't be a crappy device. Just less feature rich.

    Like I said in another thread: just buy an older iPhone.

    I have much doubt of this happening. Then again, I had extreme doubt towards the iPad mini and it happened. Only time can tell.

    They are all about the best possible product. I just don't see Apple coming out with a cheaper iPhone. That's why they sell the last 3 generations. If you wanna go cheap, you buy the iPhone 4.

    Because adding a middle-man reduces cost.

    Right.
