In an interesting twist, Walmart may be offering the 4GB Apple iPhone for only $99 plus a two-year contract. The mega discount store could start offering the older phones for those who do not want all of the bells and whistles that the newer iPhones offer.
But what is unknown is how much the two-year contract plan will cost. If in fact Walmart does offer this deal, with a reasonable two-year contract, sales of the iPhone could take off placing Apple in the drivers seat for cell phone dominance. It could also offer all consumers a reasonable alternative and force the other cell phone providers to lower their rates as well.
Right now this is only a rumor, but a rumor with teeth. 🙂
What do you think? Would this be an attractive deal for you?
