iPhone 3G S Pricing for existing iPhone Users; Is it Fair?

iPhone 3G S Pricing for existing iPhone Users; Is it Fair?

Apple announced at the WWDC 2009 Keynote address yesterday that their third generation iPhone, iPhone 3G S will be available on June 19.

As expected they didn’t change the price of their new, faster iPhone. $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB model for "new and qualifying customers".

However, if you are an existing iPhone 3G user then you will have to pay a premium over the subsidized pricing to upgrade, which doesn’t seem to have gone too well with them based on comments from some of our readers who are already ticked off as MMS and Tethering available won't be available at the time of launch of iPhone OS 3.0.

So I thought of going through it in details to give you a better perspective of iPhone 3G S pricing and to find out if it is fair.

After months of rumors and speculations, Apple announced their eagerly awaited third generation iPhone at the WWDC Keynote address today. They are calling it iPhone 3G S and as many (including our reader, Gilberto) had guessed ‘S’ stands for speed.

There are no changes in the physical design of iPhone 3G S as compared to iPhone 3G but brings some changes under the hood.
