More iPhone Details - $599 4GB and $649 8GB? [Update]
- $599 for 4GB
- $649 for 8GB
- Wider than the iPod nano
- Thinner than the iPod Video
- Made of Metal
- Multiple colors, but at least including black, white, and silver
- Cingular Wireless is likely carrier in the U.S.
- Update: Clarification: Runkle actually claimed: "full screen LCD; 3.5 inch (28x21)" and approximately 4/10ths of an inch thick. Also incorporates a Virtual Click wheel.
The proposed prices of the iPhone are much higher than the only previous rumor which pointed to $249 and $449 4GB and 8GB models. No details whether these simply represent retail prices that may drop considerably with a service plan commitment.
Historically we have little record of Rebecca F Runkle's previous accuracy. Previous descriptions of the Apple Phone have described it as a candy bar form factor (artist rendition).
