    RIM threatened by recent price drop in 8gb iPhone

    Advertisement



    Steve Jobs just announced that the price of the 8gb iPhone has dropped $200 to $399.
    A major blow to all cell phone companies because that puts them almost in the price range of the Blackberry's and in the same price range as the HTC's and Palm's.

    And in addition to that, iPhone sales are going to drop with the introduction of the iPod Touch, a WiFi enabled iPod with the same body and touch screen as the iPhone.

    Good for apple fans. But I think the new berries coming out are also hoing to put rim in a good place in the market.
    Besides is has been said in a couple of posts that blackberries belong to their own cathegory.

    Hmm. I do love my Ipod. I'm REALLY liking this iTouch thingy. That may very well go on the wish list. The fact is, the only things I liked about the iPhone are all on this thing. Sweet.

    To the intelligent consumer, yes...BB's are in their own group. But to the average consumer and the idiot's, their gonna see the most talked about gadget in DECADES as being only $100 more than "That business device I'll never use"...

    Re: RIM threatened by recent price drop in 8gb iPhone

    agreed. And going over to the dark side and reading the Apple Forums:

    The Fanboys are PISSED!

    Apple is losing a crapload of loyal customers and I do believe that their stock dipped a bit.

    And on second thought, how are Apple releases going to be seen now, people are going to be afraid to buy a product within the first couple of months after it comes out.

    I think I jumped to too many conclusions before I made this thread:

    This could actually be a good thing for RIM!!!

    I know, being as I work for at&t, saying this is blasphemy:

    I really don't like the iPhone, but the iPod Touch...

    ...maybe has a future in my life alongside my Curve

    Yuppers. The new nano is like a Hobbit of mp3 players...

    I was halfway expecting hairy feet! (not my joke, it was either on Giz or BGR: but I completely agree)

    The touch has everything I would be using the iPhone for anyway...

    Even our "tester models" we have at the stores to take home and try them out, I only used it for YouTube and the iPod functions
