Just noticed the unlocked iPhone 4S has dropped to $549 at the Apple Store. Any corresponding price drop on Virgin Mobile iPhone 4S expected? Web site still says $649...
At the Apple live event, Tim Cook announced that the iPhone 4S will still be available and the price will drop to $99.
Apple is perpetuating the same strategy by keeping the previous generation iPhone in its line-up to attract customers concerned by the price. The iPhone 4 will stay in the lineup as well and Apple will give it away if you sign a two-year contract in the U.S.
