iPhone news roundup: subsidies, Flash, Canada, and beatings

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Psst… you hear that there’s a new iPhone coming out next month? Yeah, us too. Here are a few iPhone stories we’ve been tracking from the past handful of days:

* An analyst for Oppenheimer claims that AT&T is going to be shelling out $325 for each and every iPhone 3G it sells, compared to an average of $200 for other devices on the carrier’s shelves. What’s more, devices sold in Apple stores (as opposed to AT&T stores) will cost AT&T another $100 for some reason, bringing the grand total to $425 — not including the $199 or $299 the customer is paying for the 8GB and 16GB models, respectively. Where Oppenheimer is getting its figures isn’t exactly clear, but we suppose it’s believable — and as the analyst suggests, the higher subsidy reflects AT&T’s confidence that they’ll be able to recoup the loss with a higher ARPU.

This is a preview of iPhone news roundup: subsidies, Flash, Canada, and beatings.
