Most basic model is 16 gigabytes.

The earlier generation will be priced at hundred 99. want to bring back in paul.

I am already seeing people not happy about the price point here.

What do you think?

Is it too expensive?

They are still following this bmw playbook.

They believe they can maintain their margins and the relatively insensitive to what happens with regard to market share in implications for growth in other markets.

It is entirely an understandable instinct.

They really matters whether or not you are in a dominant position.

People do not i software.

This will come back to bite them.

The comeback much sooner than people would like.

It will be shipping to begin with.

We are not getting the range of colors.

It looks like it will only be coming and black-and-white.

What do you make of that?

My only counter argument is that nokia just unveiled its own tablet.

It was not cheap.

They said that this could be a no go.

Probably so very justified in starting a new ipad at $499. i get it.

I know what consumers are crazing.

It is interesting to see them increase the price of this new ipad many.

Maybe it will offset the did and.

I think it would have been a bolder plate to keep this at a lower price.
