I think one of the greatest examples of price skimming comes with well-marketed cell phones. It's shocking to see how much the price of a new phone fluctuates in the first few months.
I think about the iPhone, and how people were lining up for hours, even days, just to get the newest model. Apple could pretty much charge what they wanted because loyal early adopters would do anything to have the newest model.
For those of us who waited a few months, it became more affordable and dropped quite a bit. There was even a bit of outcry that Apple dropped the price by $200 dollars on their 8GB iPhone in just 60 days after it's release.
