iPhone drops $200, Apple offers $100 Rebate for Early Adopters

Here’s the link to (Real) Steve Jobs Open iPhone Letter announcing the rebate.

Apple iPhone now $399http://www.apple.com/hotnews/openiphoneletter/

I guess Steve really does want an iPhone in every pot. I suspect he sees a barrage of imitators and copycats and improvements so he wants to get the iPhone in as many hands as possible before his brand and this marketspace becomes oversaturated with similar models with similar features.

Oh Yeah. Brande New iPods and new iTouch which is an iPhone without the Phone. Interesting.
