AT&T is airing a new -- that's right, new! -- commercial for the 2010 iPhone 3GS 8GB highlighting it's recently lowered price of $49. AT&T also has a new logo treatment at the end, which has also been attached to their previous iPhone 4 "anniversary" commercial.
Is it odd for AT&T to be advertising a phone that's been on the market, in one form or another, for for roughly 19 months now? Is the $49 price point so attractive compared to the $199 starting point for iPhone 4 that AT&T feels it's worth the marketing dollars -- even over newer Android and Windows Phone devices?
Or is AT&T simply touting something else Verizon can't match -- a bargain iPhone?
(We'll replace the above video with the official AT&T version as soon as it's posted).
