Does Apple really need to manufacture a cheaper iPhone?< <

Cheaper iPhone or budget iPhone release rumours reached an overdrive mode as a suspected shell of the device was leaked on the web. As earlier reports suggested that Apple would be looking to use plastic instead of its traditional aluminium for the body of the cheaper/budget iPhone, the image depicts the same.

The image of the rear shell of the alleged cheaper/budget iPhone surfaced on the web, courtesy to accessory manufacturer, Tactus. The rumours about the specs of the cheaper/budget iPhone have been making headlines at tech blogs dedicated to Apple and its products. The image shows a design similar to iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G.

The rumoured specs of the cheaper/budget iPhone include an A5 chip, 5MP camera and a 3.5-inch Retina display. Another benefit of using plastic in the body is the range of colours; speculations suggest that the device would be available in black, white, blue, red, and yellow. The price of the cheaper /budget iPhone is speculated to be in the range of $300-$400.

Some reports predict that the cheaper/budget iPhone will be released in June and shipped in July while others state that the device will launch on October 15. Recent reports suggest that Apple generates 45% of profit in the PC market, which has led to the necessity of a cheaper/budget iPhone. Do you think Apple should release a cheaper/budget iPhone?
