    Default Other Shoe Drops: Wal-Mart 16GB 3GS for $97


    According to CNN and other sources, giant US discount retailer Wal-Mart Stores will cut $100 off the price of the 16GB iPhone 3GS starting tomorrow. (UPDATED: The phones at this price apparently are only available as in-store purchases, not online - thx random tipster!) With a two-year contract, Wal-Mart buyers can now get a 3GS for the same price as an 8GB 3G: $97 - two bucks cheaper than AT&T charges for the 3G 8GB.

    CNNMoney reported on a statement by Mehrdad Akbar, Wal-Mart's senior category director for wireless, that the cut was made because "it is our commitment to always lead on price." There's no hard data indicating a fall-off in purchases of iPhones ahead of the expected June rollout of the fourth-generation model. However, Apple alleged as part of its complaint against Gizmodo that the website's revelation of the new model would hurt sales.

    Wal-Mart began selling the iPhone in late 2008, and sold the low-end 3GB and 16GB 3G models for $2 less than AT&T and other retailers like Radio Shack. There's no word yet on whether the other retailers will drop their prices, but it's likely only a matter of time.

    Not too surprising with the 4G soon to be released.
    Apples taste good.

    OMG, I could just go to the store and buy it! But, kinda pointless when it comes to the 4G.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    As far as i know, for old contracts, its $175- $5 for each month you've been with them, but with new contracts, its $ 325 - $10 for each month you're with them.

    Now that's near my budget. Sad thing is the service is way too much. Maybe the new iPhone will be better anyway

    I wonder when the iPhone HD will release... Hopefully next year and not right after the 4G is released.

    I agree. I'll be in line the day it comes out. But 97 dollars for a 3Gs is a great price.

    I'm not someone who will wait in line for the newest and greatest hence I have 2 8gb 3g phones. Does anyone know if I could by chance grab the 3gs at this price in which all I need to do is renew my contract for 2 yrs? Not eligible for an upgrade till next year...

    "it is our commitment to always lead on price."

    Gee, what a gutsy call. You want to lead on price? Have the balls to do it when the product launches not when it is about to be replaced by a newer better iphone.

    What a chump.
