Sprint prices iPhone rival Instinct at $130
Analysts say it will be tough for Instinct to compete with a new, high-speed iPhone model due to go on sale for $199 on July 11.
How come when you mention the iPhone price you round down to $199, but when you mention the Instinct, you round up to $130? Are you trying to make it look like the price difference is not as much as if you rounded the iPhone to $200? Either round both up or both down to be consistent.
We were consistent. The iPhone will indeed cost $199, so there was no reason to round that up or down. Instinct will cost $129.99, so we rounded up by one penny, as opposed to rounding down by 99 cents: GBU Editor
