By: Prashanth Shantharam  |  2, August 2012

Wow, would you consider paying $800 for the new iPhone 5? Its unlikely that Apple would price it that high, but today on Twitter rumors mills have kicked into overdrive with regards to the iPhone 5 pricing. #800dollarsforaniPhone” and “iPhone 5 $800″ were trending topics on Twitter.

Its unclear where the rumor originated from, but people are commenting frantically on the price point. From a cursory sentiment analysis on Twitter, $800 for an iPhone 5 is a resounding NO.

We hope the iPhone 5 is made more affordable than its predecessors.

    "Mobile is fundamentally reshaping how we as consumers spend from housing and healthcare to entertainment and travel, from food and drinks to communication and transportation. Mobile not only influences purchase behavior but also post purchase opinions. When the share button is literally a second away, consumers are willingly sharing more information than ever before. Mobile is thus helping close the nirvana gap for brands and advertisers who seek to connect advertising to actual transactions. The long-term battle is however for owning the context of the users. Having the best knowledge about the user to help drive the transaction is the simply the most valuable currency of commerce.” -- Chetan Sharma State of Global Mobile Industry Report1H, 2011
