The new iPhone 5 due this Fall is getting the majority of news time lately. But, what’s flying under the radar is the “iPhone Lite“, a cheaper and affordable iPhone designed specifically for consumers in developing countries.
At this point though, discussing specific features would be purely speculative. But, in terms of how to keep costs down, what could the iPhone Lite lose? Industry insiders say that a cheaper shell and overall construction and losing internal memory altogether could do a lot.
So, the question is, will the iPhone Lite come to America, or focus on China and other still developing countries? And, if launched in America, the iPhone Lite is priced equivalent to Android models, could Apple’s market share regain the lead once again?
