$800 for the iPhone 5?  #800DollarsForAniPhone Rumor Angers Twitter Users

By  |  3 Comments

Rumors of an $800 iPhone 5 are taking over Twitter with iPhone 5 $800 and #800DollarsForAniPhone trending on the social networking site.

It’s not clear where the rumor of an $800 iPhone started, but half of Twitter worrying where they’re going to find the cash and the other half is making hilarious demands from an iPhone with a $800 price tag.

Twitter users can calm down.

There’s no way Apple will release an iPhone 5 with an $800 price, at least that you’ll pay.

iPhone 5 $800

iPhone 5 $800?

Apple already sells an $800 iPhone. If you want to buy the 64GB iPhone 4S off contract it is $829. Thanks to the discounts carriers give when you sign up for a two-year contract, that price drops to $399. Even the $199 iPhone 4S retails for over $600 without a contract.

Analysts tell The Street that Apple is very unlikely to charge $800 for an iPhone, pointing to Apple’s typical profit margins. Not to mention, Apple prefers to add features to products without increasing the price of the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

What would an iPhone 5 worth $800 look like? Assuming Apple did charge $800 it would probably look a lot like the iPhone 5 concept in the video below. This iPhone 5 concept packs in a 3D Retina Display, Holographic display and a Holographic controller for gaming.

    For $800 why would you not get a Galaxy Note that once it gets Jelly Bean will be a device that can do everything you could ever want a mobile device to do.$800 for a device with a tiny 4″ screen seems ridiculous especially with Apple being behind Android every time they claim to be the first or only one to do something & Ive been doing that thing with my Android devices for like the last 6 months or more. If its a real price then it better have some mind blowing technolgy & a complete overhaul of its outdated design.-KID ANDROID

    These people really expect a lot from an $800 device. A good HD TV costs at least that much (if you want a decent size) and can’t do nearly as much as an iPhone.

    Try living in the UK – 16GB 4s off contract will cost you £500 today – almost $800 already.
