Refurb iPhones August 21, 2007

The Apple Store is now reselling Apple Certified Refurbished iPhones (in my country this qualifies as an ukay-ukay iPhone) at US$100 less than the brand-new price. That’s approximately 20% off, at US$399 and US$499 for the 4 and 8GB units respectively, complete with a year’s warranty.

The question now is, what was wrong with these units in the first place, that had them returned and refurbished just seven weeks after release?

Customer dissatisfaction? High-impact encounter with a cement floor? Shattered screen? Or worse yet, factory defects – a dead batt? iPhone dead strip?

Whatever the reason, it’s too soon methinks.
