pay by the month. that's the hottest part of the smart phone sector. it's over a third of smart phone users are on prepaid and this is not aimed toward that. only 32 gig, not 64. not the 128 everybody would still like to see. and the new technology on the 5s. that's not in here. kind of like yesterday's iphone. slightly cheaper with colors.. >> wasn't the idea to get people in the game at least and give them the prototype. >> right. the idea is it's not as cheap as we'd hoped. if you buy this off contract, it's 550 or 650. you are going to pay a ton of money to do that. it still feels like i bought less. so for $100 more, don't you want the flag ship. >> the average customer do the smart phone users do they really use everything the smart phone
has to offer? >> no. it's like your computer computer. out of the features. we like to know we bought the capacity. what we have here is part of the reason apple has not announced their first week in preorder sales is i think they've split the baby. between two new phones at once. so that's part of where you are hearing. where is the first weekend preorder numbers. >> and the stock's down 10%. >> the stock's down quite a bit. a lot of that was built in advance. this was not the best kept secret. >> no. we were talking about it way before. >> the price surprised me how high it was. >> remember more of the tech watch segments on kpix.com. a look for what's coming up later. >> norah joins us live with more of that. good morning. >> good morning to you.
