Hoping for something more, investors booked profits and sent Apple shares down 2% after the presentation.
Apple chief Steve Jobs, who hosted the iPhone ceremony that was live-blogged by TheStreet from the Moscone Center in San Francisco, said that the new iPhone will start at $199 and will be available on June 24 in five countries.
As expected, Apple cut the price of the current iPhone 3GS to $99. And in an effort presumably to lock in subscribers ahead of a Verizon (VZ) iPhone arrival later this year or next year, AT&T (T) says it will allow customers whose contracts expire this year to upgrade at the subsidized price.
