Verizon iPhone 4 Will Cost $50 More Than AT&T iPhone 4

No comments:



The Verizon iPhone 4 will cost $50 more than the AT&T iPhone 4 when purchased off contract, according to a 9to5Mac report.

AT&T allows customers to purchase the 16 GB iPhone 4 for $599 sans the contract and charges $699 for the contract-free 32 GB model. On the other hand, Verizon charges $649 and $749 for the two models, respectively.

It's unclear if this difference is due to the CDMA hardware or just a premium for the new device.

Where Apple Makes Its Money

No comments:



Asymco's Horace Dediu has posted the latest version of his Apple quarterly sales chart which shows where Apple makes its money.

iOS powered products (which did not exist three and a half years ago) generated 65% of all sales in the last quarter. OS X powered products generated 20% of sales. That’s a noteworthy combined total of 85%.

But software is even more important for Apple. The sale of OSX software (both the operating system and applications for it) accounted for another $786 million or 3% of total. In addition, I’ve put forward some evidence to suggest that the proportion of sales due to Apps in the Music store is nearly half, or another $600 million (a bit more than 2%).
