Apple to release entry-level iPhone in December - report

Wednesday 9 January 2013 | 09:15 CET | News
Apple plans to release a cheaper, smaller iPhone as early as December, a person familiar with the matter told Bloomberg. Apple is looking at pricing the phone between USD 99 and USD 149. The company has spoken to at least one US mobile operator about the plan. Another person said Apple has been working on a less expansive phone since at least February 2011 to reach more customers in emerging markets. The move would bring Apple into the lower-price category dominated by Samsung Android devices. Apple would not comment on the matter.
