We reported recently about Wal-Mart slashing the price on a 16GB iPhone 3GS by a massive $100, in readiness for the proposed launch of the iPhone 4G. This makes sense for retailers to start shifting stock they will be in some user’s eyes obsolete.
The news that Apple themselves are no longer taking orders for the iPhone 3G 8GB and have stopped shipping to AT&T stores, could mean the end of this version. Mwd.com is asking if it is worth buying one of Wal-Marts iPhones.
The offer at Wal-Mart seems on the surface a good one, but delve a little deeper it may not be such a good idea. A new and improved iPhone seems set for launch very soon with a front —facing camera. Add to that talk of new and faster processor that has been confirmed all be it unofficially.
Another reason to hold fire is the fact of being tied in to AT&T contract for two years with an old handset. Are you going to buy and iPhone from Wal-Mart? Click here for full story.
