+ - Apple Considering iPhone Rebates?

Submitted by Enuratique
Enuratique (993250) writes "The San Francisco Gate reports indications Apple is considering a small rebate anywhere between $50 and $150 for its upcoming iPhone. Despite long resisting the industry practice of subsidizing new phones, Apple may concede in return for a revenue sharing bounty with AT&T.

From the article: Shaw Wu of American Technology Research reported today that his sources say Apple is considering a rebate or subsidy for the phone in the range of $50 to $150. That would put the iPhone around the $350 to $550 mark, depending on the version. Still expensive but more palatable."
