Update or cut-rate — which way do you lean?
Wal-Mart says it’s cutting the price of the most up-to-date iPhone in half, Associated Press reports. That’s another sign Apple is getting ready to unveil a new model.
Wal-Mart says that starting Tuesday the iPhone 3GS with 16 gigabytes of storage space will cost $97 with a two-year contract with AT&T. It currently costs $197, AP says.
Leaked prototypes for an updated iPhone surfaced on blogs recently. The price cut could signal retailers are clearing the shelves to make room for a new Apple smart phone, AP writes.
So, will you pounce on the discounted iPhone?
Or will you wait for the new version — and higher price — to see what bells and whistles are added?
Also, let’s hear from those not moved by the iPhone at all. Why not?
