Apple: $100 Price Cut Or Free Music?
There have been two rumors floating around.
1) Apple will cut the price of the iPod Touch and iPhone by $100
2) Apple will offer iTunes music subscriptions
Actually, I think #2 will actually be free music. That’s what the Finns are offering.
I think these two rumors are connected.
If the record labels don’t jump on Apple’s offer, Apple will simply cut the price of the iPod Touch and iPhone.
If the record labels agree, the unit prices will remain as they are and that “price cut” will wind up in the pockets of the record labels.
Which would you rather have? Free music or lower hardware prices?
