Walmart drops iPhone 3GS Price to $97 , 8GB 3G to get axed ?


Looks like Apple is in full swing to clear out unwanted iPhone inventory just before the new version is launched. Walmart has dropped the price of the iPhone 3GS 16GB version to $97 on a 2-year contract.  It is currently selling at $199.

“It is our commitment to always lead on price,” Mehrdad Akbar, Wal-Mart’s senior category director for wireless, in a prepared statement about the price change.

So if you are buying the iPhone 3G 8GB version just to save some money without going for the 3GS you are just buying a soon-to-be-dead product.We won’t recommend buying the 3GS at this time either. It will also be eventually killed.

Just wait for June 7th for Apple to announce the next iPhone !

And if you are looking to sell your iPhone , Do it NOW !

    Is it 3GS 16 GB version for $97 or as you mentioned its 8GB ?

    Anyhow, Apple deserves a pat on back for introducing to be phased out 3GS a month ago in India. What strategic move for company & how lame for us to get it now. I would like to know the approx figure of unit sales of 3GS in India since its launch, if anyone can help me in finding it !!!

    • fixed the info .. its actually 16gb 3gs . Regarding sales figures i bet it will be in hundreds 😛

        WERE IS THIS GETTING SOLD AT BECAUSE I NEED A NEW ONE

  • This comes as no surprise especially after rumors that Apple have stopped shipping the 3G now too.

    A quick stock flush to make way for the 4G no doubt. I want to sell my 3G now as the value will go way down by the time 4G is announced but I need a phone so I can’t!

  • Another strategy from Apple to get people to sign up. Wonder if Costco is going to match or make the same offer.
