It is not just the screen and dock connector that's been redesigned in the iPhone 5, Apple just disclosed the redesigned prices for its handset portfolio.

As you can easily guess, the single-core iPhone 4 with a 5MP camera gets the price of zero dollars, the dual-core iPhone 4S withe the 8MP shooter falls down to $99, and the new kid on the block, the redesigned iPhone 5 with LTE will debut at... you guessed it... $199.

The prices are, of course, for the 16GB versions of all three handsets, and on a two-year contract, for each doubling of the internal memory, you have to slosh a Benjamin more. 

This pricing is totally in line with every new iPhone launch, so Apple kept up the tradition in this regard, with a growing portfolio of metal-and-glass handsets to choose from.

The iPhone 5 will appear on 240 carriers in more than a hundred countries, with preorders starting Friday, for a launch on the September 21. Any takers?
