Walmart iPhone Coming but at Normal Price
There is nearly no doubt that the iPhone is coming our for sale at Walmart before the end of the month. Bloomberg
has all but confirmed the rumor with a couple Walmart store representatives and five cell-hone department employees in Walmart stores across California.
On the other hand it is appearing more obvious that the $99 4 gb iPhone
is no more than a rumor. First of all bloomberg confirmed that Walmart will be offering two models of iPhone. Those two models will most likely be the 8 gb and 16 gb versions that are currently out on the market at normal prices. Second, Macrumors
has come up with an image of some iPhone advertising from Walmart (above). In the advertisement there is no mention of a $99 iphone -- all that is there is the 8 gb iPhone we alread know and love for $197 (ooo $2 off). The fact that there has been nothing to reinforce the original $99 iPhone rumor just makes it all the more likely that it is not true and wont be happening.
iPhone at Walmart in December? Yes.
$99 4 gb iPhone? No.
