iPhones - $99 at Walmart!

This tech news has caught us by surprise...

The San Jose Mercury News reports, for example, that iPhones could be on sale at Wal-Mart stores by the end of December, and possibly even before Christmas, although pricing is still not known. Bloomberg also reports that Wal-Mart is preparing to sell two versions of the iPhone.

The blogosphere has been rife with rumors of a 4GB $99 iPhone, sold via Wal-Mart, during recent weeks, although the MacRumors blog told a different story Monday.

"Based on available Wal-Mart training materials and advertising we've received, however, it seems that this rumor is unlikely," it said. "The advertising shown only lists 8-Gbyte iPhones for sale at $197, without any hints of a cheaper model."

More on this news item here!'s kinda of nice...but...
The iPhone coolness factor will drop down to almost zero when every Tom, Dick and Harry will have one.
And this price doesn't include the ATT phone plan! Be ready to fork some serious dough!
