What is the price of Apple 's "iPhone"?

The mobile phone terminal is originally sold at a price of 50,000 or 60,000 yen by a dealer, and it is sold at a price of 20,000 yen or 30,000 yen, but this is because the mobile phone company pays a reward It is said that it is realized because it is issuing.

I wonder if Apple's "iPhone", which is said to be announced soon, will also be affordable? I expected it, but it seems to be a little different.

According to this article, Apple considers "iPhone" to be an "iPod with a phone function" to the last, and in order to preserve the brandiness of the iPod, the mobile phone company does not want to pay the reward I mean that.

As a result, apparently there is a possibility that the price will be set higher than the same capacity iPod. And, "iPhone" itself is scheduled to be deployed across mobile carriers in each country, but finally it will be the same price at any mobile phone company.

I think that it is also a good idea to adopt rewards to spread "iPhone" and make more profitable at the iTunes Store, but is it that you made top priority on brand name? As I mentioned earlierWhen deployed from docomo and Softbank in Japan, I'm worried about the possibility of competing with music distribution services such as Chaku-Uta Full provided by each.
