    Cue some stupid contracts (length & amounts) and people paying well beyond their means for them.

    Which is not that different from the previous iPhone in terms of spec, but must have latest shiny thing!
    (that and Apple will probably restrict certain things from running on the previous-generation model at some point. You can jailbreak, of course, but IMO if you want a phone you can do whatever you want with, you're better off with Android.)

    Do you only reach moron status if the phone is more than 700? Are 599.99 and 619 phones okay to buy?

    My phone battery packed in on my non smart nokia, and im happy to say without a mobile phone. I dont miss it at all.

    I hardly ever used it to make calls and spent about 20 a year topping it up. I wont be rushing to get a replacement, but im sure someone will buy me another if it becomes a problem.

    A 709 phone provides it's owner more bragging rights than a 100 phone.....

    It's the same with PCs, & cars. Humans don't grow feathers or antlers to show off like the animal kingdom...... I would imagine a few thousand years ago it was the size of your spear or stone axe

    Heavens forbid someone might buy one because their current phone is old, they enjoy gadgets, like using iPhones or just want to. Damn those stupid, stupid people.

    Not sure which is worse the price of the phone, the people that will buy one because it is new and shiny or the sanctimonious bunch who have to deride other people's choices!

    I saw this thread before there were any replies [/hipster] and guessed it was about the new "affordable" iPhone.

    The good news, with your new 709 iPhone you won't need to remember any of those pesky passwords anymore thanks to the new fingerprint reader
    The bad news, when you get mugged for said phone you'll also get your finger cut off at the same time

    If going by past technology trends Apple must be on the way out by now, it's time for something newer and shinier to take its place (see Nokia 1990-2000 lol)

    Well, I just spent 118 on one of these for Mrs Dos_Box's birthday: Cubot GT99 - 4.5 Inch IPS HD screen Android 4.2 Quad: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics seeign as the N9770 I got earlier this year was too big for her to use effectively.
    Quad core, all mod cons, very nippy and with an excellent display. Review to follow soon
    700 For a phone *pfftt*, you could buy a pretty decent laptop for that.
