So while Apple doesn't have any shiny new toys to show at CES, and they claim that they are not threatened by anything coming from the Android world, they have come out with their own bombshell of a sort.
After AT&T announced almost 20 new and different smartphones planned for release this year at CES, and industry growth now shows Android will pass iOS in 2011, Apple has responded by announcing that effective Friday the 8Gb version of the iPhone 3GS will now be available for $49. You still need to sign that 2-year contract with AT&T and you also have a device that doesn't provide all of the options of the current crop of Androids, but for those that HAVE to have it there you go.
Might as well start giving them away at that price to stop the bleeding...
