Some analysts said the cheaper 8GB iPhone 4 could help Apple boost sales in emerging markets.because apple iPhone are so costly so it’s not possible for an emerging markets to purchase apple’s item.
Apple may want to push into the emerging market segment where customers want to switch to low- to mid-end smartphones from high-end feature phones, which usually cost $150-200.
