So the iPhone 3G has been discontinued, and now Wal-Mart has gone and lowered the price of the iPhone 3GS down from $197 to $97—a full $100 drop. The change gives credence to the rumor that Apple will be dropping the price of the iPhone 3GS to $99 with two-year contract, and that the 3GS will take the place of the 3G as the entry-level iPhone device. As we stated previously, we thought it would behoove Apple to keep the 3G around as the free with contract phone, then use the 3GS as the $99 device, and finally use the iPhone Pro as the flagship model. We think that would be a good price structure to take on Android, but hey, we aren’t Apple—let’s see where this all ends up.
In the meantime though, as enticing as a $97 iPhone 3GS might sound, just wait to see what gets announced at the WWDC 2010 keynote first, m’kay?

Apple announced earlier this morning that Steve Jobs will be doing keynote duty at WWDC 2010 on June 7th. Things will kick off at 10:00 AM Pacific time, and all signs point to the introduction of the next iPhone (iPhone Pro? iPhone HD?)

Hey, we are even hearing that there may be bits and pieces revealed about the next major Apple operating system. Exciting times, no?
