New 4G iPhone in 2010 vs. cheaper re-engineered 3GS

When Steve Jobs takes to the stage tomorrow and as expected announces Apple’s new iPhone 4G, it will become this year’s must have gadget. But since its launch back in 2007 the iPhone has always been at the top end of the mobile market, with not everyone being able to afford the handset.

Richard Wray of the Guardian.co.uk is reporting on speculation that Apple might decide to have a larger piece of the mobile market by selling more than one handset. The company is expected to cease production of the 3G version, and do away with current versions of the iPhone 3GS.

It is rumored that Apple might bring out a new 8GB version of the iPhone 3GS, and target it at a wider customer base. This will allow users to get their hands on an iPhone using cheaper price plans. This move could take on the likes of Nokia and Samsung who are both ahead of Apple in the mobile phone market.

Time will tell if Apple does decide to go mass market, we will have to wait until tomorrow to find out. Use the link provided to read the full story on this. What are your thoughts, would you like to see a cheaper iPhone?
