Alright Apple, spin this however you’d like, but the fact remains people want more memory at a better price. The “cool factor” is starting to wane and many iPhone adopters see their friends with inexpensive phones and iPod’s with lots more memory that still get the job done.
So, Mr. Jobs, get off your high-horse and eat the bitter pill of unmoved iPhone inventory. Yank out the low memory guts and replace it with more. Then you’ll be able to recoup some of your production and marketing costs.
Like I said in the article, Your Virtual iPhone, what I have works great and I am not switching until this product gets where it needs to be — and it will get there. To bad many will spend 2 to 3 times over what it would have cost to wait for the “right one.”
Its kind of weird here in Europe. Apple released a phone without 3G.
Despite the numbers of sells there are quite a few more who are wanting what has been popular over here for awhile. Namely 3G.
Kind of amazing, I remember a time (stateside) when the U.K, etc was behind techically from the U.S. This was back in 2000 when I first looked at coming over to Europe. I was disappointed with the slower lines, etc.
Dont know what happened, but the U.K. and Europe in general took off in many areas. (cell, gaming, etc.)
So in short, yes, Steve needs to do something if he wants to attract a wider audience…and getting people upset on his home soil isnt going to help him much.
Im a mac fan through and through…but Im not about to pay premium for something thats not worth the premium tag. :)
p.s. where are those new macbook pros by the way. My 5 year old laptop is ready for an update. :)
