They'd better introduce another iPhone - my V1's dying, fast. Hopefully it'll be something bigger and better, however, so that I'll have reason to buy it..
On the topic of Apple's stock rating remaining "buy", I agree. It's dipped quite a bit since it's all time high of $201 per share last year, but it remains the only stock that has a green percentage box amongst a lot of red whenever I open the stocks app.
Ditto. My battery ain't what it used to be. Not a problem yet, but soon... That and I unknowingly plugged my car charger in with snow and rock salt stuck in it, giving me the dreaded airplane mode warning for over an hour. Fortunately, I air blasted it and dried it out and that seems ok. For now.
I doubt a no-data-plan iPhone will ever come out. Seems like it would make sense, but both Apple and AT&T will probably make plenty of money just not doing that.
But, if you are getting an iPhone for a child, and don't want to pay the $30 for data, such the iPod phone makes sense. Especially, if your child is not likely to go to a WiFi hotspot (without supervision), and you want to retain parental control over internet access.
