Well, RBC Capital Markets General Manager Mike Abramsky predicts that Apple will finally be on the market with a free smartphone when the next version of the iPhone arrives. Specifically, he claims that Apple will be selling the iPhone 3GS for free with an accompanying 2-year contract, which should hopefully prove to be combat the surge of low and mid-range Android handsets. Moreover, Abramsky believes that this logical move would double Apple’s market to approximately 150 million smartphones.
As we all know, AT&T still holds ownership to the iPhone 3Gs, which is evident by the advertising spots that continue to air on television. Although Verizon is now selling the iPhone 4 and appears to be on board with the next one, it’ll be interesting to see if Apple will grace them with a similar version of the iPhone 3GS.
