The Financial Times runs a report that the new iPhone is set to be sold at much lower prices, because Apple allows carriers to give subsidies on the iPhone.

Rumors of iPhone subsidies appeared in April. The FT makes it look as it is sure.
The FT also argues that Apple needs to make this step because of the global downturn.
Apple has sold this year about 1.7m iPhones, but their goal is 10m in 2008. To reach this goal a 3G iPhone for about $200 would help tremendously.

Apparently carriers are supposed to make additional money on advertising on the iPhone.
