    I am sure they will sell a lot of them. The news have been full of stories the past few days of Apple changing payments as the new phones will probably use the new Apple invention NFC to replace plastic cards, and if it is true that Apple now also have invented bigger screens, all the Apple users will be flocking to hand over their money.

    All the Tg sponsers better budget the new iPhone into their 'outgoing'. It just a must have for a BG.

    I am not up on Apple but I haven't found anything my 7K Moto G won't do and do well including the bigger games.

    Looks like the biggest buzz this cycle seems to be around massive screens.. Some of these 5.7 inch screens feel real large in the hand, but do of course have much more text / browsing / app ability..

    Interesting to see what the nexus 6 will price at... under 500 USD ??

    I'm still on a 4S so I'm due an upgrade/birthday present I think The 6 release seems like an ideal time to do it, but I won't be going for the big one.

    the funny thing is..in the US..they practically give these phones away..that is of course if you commit to signing up with a particular provider for so many years...Sprint offerd me a an S5 for $50 if I signed with them for 3 years...

    Be interesting to see this thread in a weeks time. 55

    The link seem to be lacking an 'authoritative' type of specs, Gb instead of GB, gigabits V gigabytes.

    No mention of a 128GB option, which seems highly likely, given recent rumours and leaks.

    Doubt this really means anything TBH. pure speculation without any evidence.

    Quote from the OP, " Is apple for real with this loony pricing for the iPhone6?!",

    Highly doubtful, but we'll know soon enough.

    One of the best tech articles I've read for months about Apple's previous PR stunts and beyond. I'll never be a fan, but also readily recognize the genius that is Apple PR. Kind of doubt that the prices above are correct though. Either an Apple plant or a compeditor plant, or... We'll see on the 9th.

    Soooo glad the she-wok doesnt ask for this kind of stuff. She's too much of a tightwad.

    That said, I bought a Google Nexus tablet, proceeded to not use it for 3 weeks, so I decided to make it a gift to her. $250... not a big expense and I wasnt using it anyway.

    Hands-on with Motorola's New Moto G

    And totally the other end of the spectrum.. A perfectly serviceable.. 5 inch 720p screen.. Etc etc.. for 179 USD..

    Price compression will hurt margins..

    iPhone 6 will be on par with he current Samsung Galaxy S 5.

    Apple has forever lost the pace. Not coming back.

    But their strength lies in marketing and the fanatical iHerd. Some people will pay over $1k for one if that was the cost. And they probably only cost about 50 bucks to manufacture.
