Naturally, the week prior to any big announcement is always full of hoodwinking and preposterous statements floating around on and off the web. This heightened awareness, by more than just the tech press, of future releases helped create this weekend’s Laugh At Tech.
The past week, a rumor was spread around Twitter that the new iPhone would be priced at $800 starting off-contract. Traditionally, the iPhone has been priced at $199 on contract ($650 unlocked off-contract). This price is consistent since the launch of the iPhone 3G back in 2008. Of course, the actual price of the forthcoming “iPhone 5” is being kept secret until Sept 12. Check out the posts below!
