Will Jio’s 4G feature phone be as disruptive as its pricing strategy? | Business Standard News

 If Reliance Jio looks at wooing 100 million customers in the next 12 months to 4G features devices, it would mean its competitors could lose at least 10 per cent of their subscribers.

J.P. Morgan: OLED iPhone 8 will arrive on time in Sept. in small quantity, ASP of $1100 | 9to5Mac

Morgan is adjusting its forecast for the device from 9m units to ~2m units for September. It will, however, also increase its Y18 unit forecasts “by about the same amount to reflect time-shifted […]

Apple Is Losing Its Luster, by Malcolm Berko | Creators Syndicate

I don’t think Apple (AAPL-$150) will be selling many iWatches this year. AAPL’s iPad sales are down 19 percent year over year, and iPhone sales have begun retreating.

There’s no question that an Apple iPhone is an expensive device. The cheapest iPhone 7 will set you back $649. A fully tricked-out iPhone 7 Plus costs $969, which is really expensive for any smartphone.

T-Mobile will quietly hike prices to Verizon levels | BGR

The hotspot data and HD video streaming are both perks that you get with Verizon’s base plan, and are arguably necessities for heavy users.

R2 per megabyte is all but dead | Moneyweb

It’s surprising that the country’s major mobile operators haven’t trumpeted the death of R2 per megabyte (MB) charges for out-of-bundle data. That pricing – a staple of the industry since Vodacom’s launch of 3G services in 2004 – has practically disappeared. Vodacom, with over 50% market share in South Africa, has reduced out-of-bundle rates on prepaid […]

Comcast and Charter Could Give Sprint an Alternative to T-Mobile — for a Price | TheStreet

Chances are that Sprint, given its network quality and recent retail pricing actions, is also undercutting Verizon’s wholesale pricing. Though Comcast’s Xfinity Mobile pricing is competitive for users who — whether due to their mobile habits or proximity to Comcast hotspots — don’t need to consume a lot of mobile data, its unlimited data pricing […]

A Maine School District Struggles with Apple’s Notebook Pricing | The Mac Observer
