I think this is fair. I do agree that Apple has a right to set their price, but think it sent a VERY bad message to those of us who paid a premium to beta test the phone considering the issues some had. I for one was willing to pay a premium to have one the day it came out, but yesterday's price cut definitely took the wind out of my sail about Apple. In fact, I cancelled plans to purchase a new Nano for working out. Now, I will reconsider because of the credit. It's nice to know Apple listens to it's customers.Steve Jobs responded today with an open letter in which he said all iPhone early adopters would receive a $100 Store Credit.
Are you satisfied with Apple's good faith $100 Store Credit?
Better be careful, there might be a price drop on that. I think the sales will fail on that iPod touch because for the extra $100 you can buy an iPhone and it's the same exact thing but better. The only advantage that iPod touch has over the iPhone is the extra 8GB memory it comes with. It's good for those who are all ears and don't like talking on the phone.$300 bucks to spend at the Apple store for free, sweet
ill buy a new iPod touch
Mr. Jobs,Our early customers trusted us, and we must live up to that trust with our actions in moments like these.
Agree..I bought 3 iPhones on iday so thats $100x3 for me...I'M HAPPY...THANKS STEVE!They heard the complaints and responded in less than 24 hours with a $100 store credit. Having purchased (2) iPhones on iDay, it's nice to see the company responding to the iPhone community. I understood their decision to cut the price, but I also understand how customers felt slighted. I think this turns into a win-win. We'll see the iPhone community grow, we still all got to be first and the price difference is neg legible. Personally, I'll have no problems spending $100x2 at the Apple Store.
Credit to Steve Jobs for listening to Apple's customers and acting.
