Apple early iPhone subsidy?
View gist:4052761
When I say subsidised what I mean is that money was flowing from the customer trough the
carrier ending up at 1 Infinite Loop.
My basis for this "conspiracy" stems from the following:
1. The price of the iPhone increased when it went world wide. Likely to make up for lost income from AT&T.
2. Think that the normal Apple MSRP margins are not reflected by the $499 / $599 price point it was originally sold on.
3. The infamous price drop of 2007 to $399 without any change in the contract terms from AT&T underpins your claim that there
was no subsidy of the device from AT&T towards customer end price.
4. The GAAP subscription accounting model also hints that Apple will get paid per user over time.
