Are You Upset Or Excited About The iPhone Price Cut?

This week Steve Jobs announced a $200 price cut for the 8GB iPhone, bringing the price down from $599 to $399. While a price reduction is always nice, many early adopters — who purchased the device for full price — are less than pleased. In fact, so many people expressed their anger to Apple that Jobs penned an open letter to iPhone owners and offered us a $100 credit for the Apple Store.

Should early adopters be complaining or is this just one of the many prices we must pay for wanting new gadgets the minute they come out? The same thing happened with my Marc Jacobs bag and I don't expect a store credit from Jacobs any time soon...I'm just saying...

i could care less. however, i was shocked that the price dropped just after 10 weeks. we, my friends and i figured, it would take at least a year.

Honestly? I feel like if people want new technology and just CAN'T wait, they have to realize that there is a steep price penalty that comes with that. I am poor, so I always have to wait ANYWAYS. I tend to wait until a new version comes out and then I buy the discounted old one. LOL

These are the rules of the game. If you want it NOW, you pay full price, if you are patient and wise, you'll wait until they drop the price and save $200.00. I don't think early adopters have a right to complain. Almost everything goes on sale sooner or later....

I don't have a use for the i-phone, but the i-touch is pretty darn cool. I think people need to stop whining about paying for something. They really wanted it and were willing to pay the money at the time. End of story.

i'm still not going to buy it till they work out all the bugs. i'll wait till they cut down the price on the iPod touch and hang on to my nokia for phone use.

I wasn't going to buy one anyway so I don't really care. However, if someone were to give me one for free, I wouldn't refuse it. :)

EVERYONE knows that if you want it for cheap, you have to wait. so it's their own fault for being impatient. especially when it comes to apple ipods. they come out with a new model before you get home and unwrap what you just bought.

Not @ all shocked. It happens with all new gadgets with the right amount of HYPE to follow! Really was not rocket science, hello.

ok, i wasnt going to buy this generation iphone anyway - i like to have the kinks worked out first - for example the battery sucks, not to mention id have to get att which i do not want to do. BUT its really disgusting to all those loyal apple customers who went out and bought their iphone. and such a slap in the face that the $100 isnt even money back, its for more apple stuff. not to mention that we all know that with the holiday season coming up, a new version will be coming out - which is probably why apple wants to clear out the old merchandise. the whole thing just smells..really really really bad.

i think its stupid that so many people complained! thats part of the market these days! look at the PS3 and whatever else! its starts off at a ridiculous price because its the "hot thing to buy!" everyone knows the price will eventually go down if you wait! but those who want to flaunt what they've got or don't want to wait thats the price they pay!

I would serisously consider getting an iphone with the price drop, except tht i live in canada so there is no service provider. However i think the ipod touch looks ideal for me since i am really happy with my current Motorola Rizr

I'm laughing my butt off. How perfect. It normally takes 6 months for the big price cut... and Apple did it in 2 months instead. Which makes one realize that Apple intended to do all along... that they purposely overpriced them.
