T-Mobile cuts price of iPhone to EUR99-Hindustan Times
Ahead of the expected launch of a new model, Deutsche Telekom's (DT) T-Mobile has decided to cut its price in Germany for the 8-gigabyte version of Apple's (AAPL) iPhone to EUR99 from EUR399 with a two-year contract from April 7 through June 30. T-Mobile says the 16-gigabyte iPhone will continue to cost EUR499. Apple is expected to soon launch a next-generation 3G iPhone.
This is the first price discount move on iPhone that I have seen and portends to the introduction of the new iPhone 3G and corresponding price cuts on the older models. The price cut will make the iPhone sell like crazy. your not allowed to cut prices like this without AAPl knowing so this was probably given the greenlight by both companies. This news is timed right after RIMM blowout numbers, coincidence? No.
