Hu, what about the worldwide market genius?
a lot of COM companies do not subsidy the prices of the phones.

Does whether or not the phone is subsidized make a difference in this logic? There's always a trade off between those who are willing to spend more for newer technology and those who want something more sensibly priced. It doesn't matter if the price is $100 vs. $200 or $600 vs $700. My point is that different people want different things.

of course it does.
because if it was just 100 vs 200$, your logic would be spot on.. but its not.. because we are talking on the 100 vs 600 USD levels for high end phones.

Do you really think this phone is going to be $100 unsubsidized? More like 600. Let me know where you're buying your off-contract phones... because I'd like to get one.
