Apple going to Release a Low Cost ‘iCLoud’ iPhone?
Apple is going to launch a new low cost iPhone, likely to be an iCloud iPhone, according to AppleNApps. This new low cost iPhone is expected to be somewhere around $400 price tag with a possible free giveaway with 2 year contract. Since the iPhone will have iCloud feature so it will hold significantly low amount of memory than normal ones.
To achieve the lower cost for the iCloud iPhone, Apple will use many of the same internal parts from the iPhone 4 since they’re readily available in their supply chain already, and have gone down a bit in cost. When looking at iSuppli you can see how the same parts drop in price from the 3G to 3GS to 4. The iPhone 5 will include many new parts including processor, flash memory, and both cameras. The iCloud iPhone will be using the same internal parts from the iPhone 4, but will use a slightly different external design with an aluminum back panel similar to the iPad 2. Apple will go away from the relatively more expensive glass back panel. Also, the stainless steel band is speculated to be gone with simply a curved aluminum back, again like the iPad 2.
Let’s see what comes next, whether iCloud iPhone or iPhone 5 or an iPhone 4S? Stay tuned for more updates!
