quote: Apple did put out a range of players from the expensive iPod nano toy all the way to the hideously overpriced touch (in essence an iPhone without the phone). So yes, they did actually take a product line and offer up a few levels of it (all expensive).Not sure why they waited so long to do that with the iPhone. I would think that their marketing boffins would have clued in that they would get a lot deeper market penetration if they simply offered them up with a few different levels of features. After all, not everybody can afford, or wants, the top of the line. Sometimes they need a little less at a price that is scaled accordingly.
