“Everything we’ve been told with regard to the iPhone’s pricing structure has suggested that the 4GB would hit at $499 and the 8GB at $599, and that this would be an on-contract price — expensive, yes, but likely still in the right range to keep sales brisk. New advertising allegedly leaked out of a consumer survey suggests that the 2-year contract price could come in a full two hundie lower, though: $299 for 4GB, $399 for 8GB,” Chris Ziegler reports for Engadget.
Ziegler reports, ” Of course, this is all coming out of a survey — perhaps gauging reaction to pricing — so we need to wait for some more clarification from the powers that be before declaring our wallets a little less burdened come June.”
