Apple iPhone is creating waves across the globe and the Time magazine has named the iphone as the invention of the year of 2007

No doubt that iPhone is a great device , Its a revolutionary phone – much more than a phone

In this context Im referring to the amount of cash the users burn on their mobile phones and related services such as ringtones,songs etc. We Indians spend a lot on phones for sure but mainly for calls and messages nothing more.

Apple cuts iPhone price by 200 USD

Apple has reduced the price the iPhone 8GB edition to 399 USD from 599 USD.

Thats a sharp 33 % decline price in the phone within 2 months of the launch on  June 29th.

Apple is giving a free $100 voucher to customers who had paid $599 for the same device.

This move was because many consumers were angry with Apple for making them pay extra for the same device just months back.

The price cut coincides with the announcement of new music devices like the iPod Touch and the New iPod Nano.

We speculate that the iPhone will hit the $200 mark by the time it hits Asia and India.
