yes, they are practically finished. (on this iphone version)

samsung was taking the lead in the past months but with this “new” iPhone they just won. I think at Samsung they were drinking champagne when apple revealed their iphone

currently apple lost approximately 6% of value.

to bad, because those specs look fine with 64 bit architecture and all

But another factor to keep in mind is the target market for those devices. I guess in China something like this can be a hit.

Not with the prices they announced. Chinese are really disappointed with the price of the “budget iphone”.

I know there are alternatives but iphone means the best and most expensive phone on the market for many people, is a fashion symbol. They made a fortune selling a status symbol. They can’t start selling rainbow phones now. :)

also Nokia phones are colorful and no one buys them.

maybe they want to release iPhone 6 next year, in spring, at the same time when Samsung show their flagship phone.

That could be a good move.

like look at this:

how can one not like this perfect balanced color choice

Iphones are expensive, samsung is better and don’t try to say anything else because we all know that to be true..

The phone are overpriced for what they offer, end of story.

On 5C sim-free prices are pretty much high for anyone, even more so for their “target markets”. Budget my a**. Samsung owns the “budget” market. Every cab driver has one with city maps. Every kid has one for his first mobile phone. And at $99 for 2 years, I’d rather buy the 5 instead of 5S. Still metal case and price drops really nice when the new model is out.

The 6% drop is well-deserved. Well, I guess this is what happens when in 2013 you go and make a new product presentation dressed like the 80s. :)) Jobs was the absolute geek, he could have pulled it off. Not these guys though.

They lost what they had so much struggled to earn: the premium feeling. Well, partly, cause now with the gold one you can get the Pitbull-ft-Christina-Aguilera-glitter-BS-premium-like-a-boss feeling.
