Apple iPhone 5 '$800' - The iPhone 5 $800??? That better come w hella free cases, screen protectors, gas gift cards & a yr supply of free snacks .Another tweeted: "iPhone 5 $800? Siri better turn into a jet pack when I put it on Airplane Mode."
But the big mystery about the response on Twitter is where the actual speculation about an "$800 iPhone" actually originated.
Whilst almost all the tweets criticize the purported price tag, almost none of them contain direct links to any stories from recognized news sources.
After investigating, International Business Times found that an article on the gamenguide.com site recently featured a screengrab of a Chinese auction site bearing a picture supposedly of the iPhone 5 and the equivalent price tag of $800 to $1,000.
However, the author of the article highlighted that the shot was most likely a scam and said that "pigs will fly" before the new iPhone costs that much.
A recent Reuters report on the future of Apple stock did include the figure $800 but not in relation to iPhone pricing.
Otherwise, a commentator recently posted on the phonesreview.co.uk website stating their prediction for the iPhone 5 price.
"Propably [sic] $800-$900 US dollars for 64GB. That's excluding taxes," said the person.
