Apple Inc on Monday unveiled a next-generation iPhone with faster Internet access that will run on advanced wireless networks and sell for as low as $199 -- half the current entry-level price.

Shares of Apple, after strong gains in recent months partly driven by anticipation of the new device, fell 2.2 percent after Chief Executive Steve Jobs indicated the company was going after the mass market with the new model.

"It changes the game for all smart-phone makers," Tim Bajarin, head of consultancy Creative Strategies, said of the price and new features.

I'll bet this makes all those iPhone 1.0 users feel like a bunch of beta testers who paid too much. ;)

It looks like they're planning a simultaneous release in Japan too so I can finally take a look at one of these things.

$199 but you can only buy for that price if you buy into their monthly plans $59 or something per month over 2 years + little extras

...so your 199 iphone turns into $1500 over 2 years pretty quickly
