iBucket Gives Worried Retailers a Reason to Look Forward to Shopping Season
Today's WSJ reports that Wall Street expects the $215.99 iBucket to give this holiday shopping season a badly needed shot in the arm.
With North American sales of the iBucket set to start the day after ThanksGiving, iPhone afficionadoes have already begun lining up outside of the still under-construction iBucket stores in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Toronto, and Montreal in order to be the first to own the hot new iPhone accessory.
In related news, Apple spokeswoman Gidget Gringle announced that Apple was set to introduce its own version of the iBucket in mid 2008. It will be called the iPail and is expected to retail for $400 to $500. "This will be the must have Christmas gift next year", she added. Apple shares instantly rose 15 points on the news.
