The new iPhone 8 is reportedly due out mid-September and at least one model – hopefully not the entry level one – is set to cost $999 USD.
What do you think? Too pricey, or about right, given the price point of the average laptop?
These phones are more and more powerful and increasingly put the world in our hands. $1000 might be a fair price, but it sure makes that $40 case seem all the more important. I think my Samsung S7 Edge was worth about $700 and I just about cried when I scratched the screen the very first day.
The fact is, some people will pay whatever Apple asks – and stand in line outside for a week – just to have the latest and greatest technology. For many of us though, it’s all about the bundle. How accessible does your carrier make it, based on the amount you’re already spending with them? Or the amount you’re willing to spend to upgrade.
All I know is, I can’t wait for Bob Mills to be checking the weather on his “Apple iPhone 8” instead of his “Apple iPhone 5C”.
I won’t hold my breath. 😉
