I just wanted to get everyone thoughts on this? The last couple days has brought fresh $99 phone rumors, mainly started by analyst that like to tell Apple what's best for them. I think if I was Apple my business strategy would be to see what all these *brilliant* analyst say and then do the exact opposite :D

If you couldn't tell already I don't think the $99 is going to happen, at least not the way these analyst are thinking. I used to think the 8GB would become a $99 model and 16GB and 32GB would take the $199 and $299 spots, but now I have a new idea. I think there is a small chance 8GB 2nd gen iPhone will fill that $99 spot with the new 3rd gen iPhone taking the $199(16GB)/$299(32GB).

This isn't very Apple either, but they did do it with the Macbook White, at least for a little while before giving it a bump in hardware (same design).

What do you guys think?

It would be great to have a $99 iPhone in the market even with reduced features but I'm doubtful about 3rd gen. Apple need to address the basic phone function of iPhone before launching another hardware improvement.

So you don't think we will see a 3rd gen iPhone this summer?

I think we will see one, but I dont think it will have any major changes to it unless it software changes. Maybe a 32gig, but I dont think it will be more than that. Who knows though, apple could have big plans.
