Wal-Mart slashes price of iPhone 3GS Wal-Mart has announced, about a month before Apple is set to release the iPhone 4G, that it is slashing the price of the iPhone 3GS in half.
The 16GB 3GS model will go on sale for $97 USD with two-year contract. The smartphone currently costs $197 at Wal-Mart and $199 through Apple.

Despite the iPhone 4G being leaked, Apple has yet to confirm or deny that the phone will be officially released next month.

The annual developer conference starts on June 7th, and Apple has unveiled a new iPhone model each year during the event.

New to the "iPhone HD," are a front-facing camera for video conferencing, a better standard camera (including larger lens and flash), a Micro-SIM slot (just like the iPad), 960x640 resolution, a second mic, metallic exterior (not plastic) and split side buttons for volume.
