Post Apple Iphone 4g 16gb
How much are these things worth?

That is, people who want one and either can't upgrade and have to buy one right out?

I'm getting 2 of them as an upgrade for $199 ea. on Aug. 16th and will only be using one of them. And I want to ask a fair price for it.
I may have to open me up an Ebay account. :)

People who have to buy them without a new contract discount are around $600 (32GB).

...and a 16gb? I'm assuming about $100 less?

And wth does a 4 do that a 3GS won't do? Besides being a newer model?
Because I can get the 3GS for $99 and they don't seem to be that different.

Be sure to order a case for the iPhone 4 from either Incase (my personal fav.) or Incipio. I know you have a plethora of options when choosing a case as of today, but not all cases are made equal. :)

The selection given via Apple's Case Program is not too shabby, but if you're all about protecing your investment, go with the slider case from Incase (www.goincase.com). I've had slider cases for both my 3G and 3G-S iPhones and it never failed its duties. And when I say duties, i'm talking about dropping the device on all kinds of paved roads...

You can currently order the black (matte finish) model. Other colors have a later shipping date. I'm still waiting for my free case from Apple (to be shipped Aug. 28th...) and my slider from Incase (hopefully today or tomorrow).

FYI, I've owned every iPhone since its initial launch in 2007. ;)

Yea, these forums wouldn't be the same without at least a couple of Apple fanbois ... but I guess I'm one as well. Seeing as how I work on them, the Boss has two, (both of which I bought ... :oops: ) and more and more people are buying them. Looky here:

Quote:
Apple leaps past ASUS, Dell, Lenovo, and Toshiba in one jump!

In the second quarter, Apple’s share of the global notebook computer market more than doubled, causing the company to surge from No. 7 to No. 3 in total units shipped.

According to Deutsche Bank and reported by Fortune, Apple made this move on the strength of iPad sales, which Deutsche Bank included as part of the notebook market. Apple sold 2.47 million units of its traditional MacBook laptops in Q2 and the company also sold 3.27 million units of the iPad, which launched on April 3.

Apple still trails notebook market leaders Hewlett-Packard and Acer by a wide margin, but the iPad surge enabled it to leapfrog all of the second-tier notebook vendors - ASUS, Dell, Lenovo, and Toshiba.

Deutsche Bank analyst Chris Whitmore said, “The iPad is directly cannibalizing demand for other vendors’ [notebook] products. Remarkably, Apple’s traditional MacBook business posted accelerated unit growth on a Y/Y basis in 2Q, despite the launch of the iPad, while every other Top 5 vendor slowed.”

As the chart above shows, incumbents Hewlett-Packard, Dell, and Acer have been the vendors losing the most market share during the past year, while Apple has been the largest gainer. Asian vendors ASUS, Lenovo, Samsung, and Sony have also posted modest gains.
Sanity check

Of course, the big issue here is whether the iPad should really be counted as part of notebook/laptop sales. I’d favor breaking out tablets into their own category or at least as a sub-category of notebooks, since a tablet typically gets purchased in addition to a notebook and not as a replacement.

Then, researchers could have both a notebook category and a tablet category (or sub-category), as well as a larger category that included both. We’ve seen similar breakouts done with netbooks, where they can be broken out separately or rolled up into the notebook market totals.

That said, I do know a number of people with iPads who say they are using their notebooks less and less. So it could eventually become a replacement for a notebook purchase in some cases. Tablets may already be a replacement for a second notebook for some people. That was the phenomenon that was driving netbooks in many cases. And, that’s probably why tablets are eating into notebook sales for Apple competitors, according to the Deutsche Bank data.

The other thing to keep in mind is that Apple is the only one of these seven vendors that currently has a low-cost touchscreen tablet on the market. That won’t be the case for long. A year from now, nearly all of these vendors should have competing tablets, powered by either Android or Windows.

PS: Doesn't mean I'll buy an iPad, but I wouldn't mind waiting for the second generation ... :handgestures-thumbup:

I'm definitely looking for the second gen iPad.

I'm not a fanboy, I'm a gadget guy who loves technology. Apple just so happens to be one of the best in its industry...or should we say, its own industry? hehe. I'm also invested in AAPL stocks, so yeah...ha!

I have to admit though, Windows Mobile Phone 7 looks promising. It's UI is responsive like the iPhone and it's pretty neat.
