It seems that the usual “people briefed on Apple’s plans” have been telling one newspaper one thing and another newspaper something else -- only days after The Wall Street Journal claimed Apple was working on an “iPhone nano,” along comes The New York Times, who claims they’re not.
If cost of entry has been a barrier to keep you from jumping on board the iPhone bandwagon, AT&T may have just removed that from the equation -- effective Friday, the previous-generation iPhone 3GS will now be only $49 with a two-year agreement.
If you aren’t one of those trendsetters who require only the latest and greatest hardware but you want to jump into the iOS pool anyway, the iPhone 3GS is still an extremely competent handset -- especially if you can get one for free on contract.
And in other news, water is wet. Actually, when one of the main features of the iPhone 4 was the strength of the glass casing, it is sort of alarming that it would break 82 percent more than an iPhone 3GS' casing, according to Square Trade's study.
