Refurbished iPhones $399

Apple has begun selling refubished iPhones from its online storefront, pricing the guaranteed good-as-new cellular handsets at $100 lower than the list price. The company's iPhone features a multi-touch display with a full QWERTY virtual keyboard, the Safari Web browser, email access, and built-in Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth connectivity. iPhones -- which serve as a video-enabled iPod, cellular phone, and internet communications device -- come in 4GB and 8GB models that store up to 1,000 and 2,000 songs, respectively. Both iPhone models provide up to eight hours of talk time with 250 hours of standby time on each battery charge, and both handsets incorporate a 2.0 megapixel camera. The iPhone weighs in at 4.8-ounces, and ships with Apple earphones alongside a USB 2.0 cable.

    MacNN fluffing...

    Nice fluffing of the actual 'news'.

    Yes, it *IS* news that the iPhones are now available as refurb items at $100 less, but the rest of the 'article' is just a rehash of descriptions of the iPhone.

    This was more or less just a matter of time, as Apple did receive some returns, while at the same time, the ramp-up for the European release (September/October) is undoubtedly starting, and Apple is clearly starting the process of clearing out inventory from the channel, to culminate in a refresh of the entire line with the release of the European model.

    look closely

    It is worth going over the description, however, since the iPhone dock and wall charger are NOT included with the refurbished units.

    re: look closely

    Click on the "learn more" link and scroll to the bottom of the screen. In the last shaded box it lists accessories. The dock and power adapter are included. Looks like everything you'd get with a new unit.

    is it enough

    is $100 dollars off enough? $150 or $200 off would've been more convincing.

    Great Deal

    This is a great deal for those that were still on the fence due to the price.

    not for me

    I won't spend more than $100 on a mobile phone due to their lifespan and abuse taken. I have more important things to spend my money on, such as biodiesel at 3.50 a gallon and organic soy milk.

    Someone's gotta save the planet with all the e-waste the fanboys produce.
