  1. Yeah, blowing them out is right. With the new 64GB capacities available in NAND technology, I’ll bet these are the last you will see of a 4GB model. The next gen were rumored to be out Oct/Nov timeframe and I’ll bet they have a much larger storage capacity…

  2. iTihink Apple underestimated the initial demand for the iPhone.

    Well iGuess it’s best to have too much inventory than not enough to meet demand. One always has the choice to lower the price to clear out the excess.

    Of course the 4 GB and the 8 GB has got to go by the new year because January MacWorld has iPhone Rev. 2.

    iPhone 1.0 was a good concept, but 2.0 builds on the mistakes and needs of consumers.

    Some are thinking Apple is going with the iPod Touch primarily with a seperate optional add on that will give it the cell phone features.

  3. I love how MDN listed all the features of the iPhone, as if there are lots of people that are going to read this article that have no idea what an iPhone is. Way to leave nothing to chance, MDN.

  4. Sort of odd:

    If you navigate to the “Clearance” section via the Education store, you don’t see the 4GB iPhone, but if you go there via the regular store, you do. (at least that was my experience). Interesting.

  5. My nuts feel lighter after the price cut. I am typing this on my 8Gb model.

    I was never upset about paying the extra 200$ as an early adopted. Those who were that pissed off maybe shouldn’t have bought one because they can’t afford it. Plus as a shareholder of aapl of over 3 years it bothers me a little but I’m glad more peasants can afford it now.

  6. Goldfishy… C’mon… Education already gets fat discounts. And students off all kinds shouldnt even be buying the iphone… They should be buying books and ramen noodles. The monthly cost can kill them alone. Anyone who went to college knows what im talking about… Its insane as a college student buying expensive designer clothes.

  7. Jester, I think you miss my point.

    The point is that it simply isn’t there. All the other clearance items are there at the same price, no extra discount. Why not include the low-cost clearance iPhone on that page as well? Why is that one item not included when all the other clearance items are there? And I know plenty of college students who manage to have ample funding for their educations from a variety of sources (sadly, I was not one of them).
