Walmart to cut price of AT&T iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S

New iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S pricing at Walmart

Walmart is set to cut the price of the iPhone 4 to $114 on contract and the 8 GB iPhone 4 to $34 according to these price cards and their internal pricing console. These are $54 and $74 price drops respectively, but it doesn't seem like many (if any) Walmarts have pulled the trigger on the new pricetags just yet.

While the price cut isn't a huge deal in and of itself, it does suggest that a new iPhone is right around the corner. We're expecting the iPhone 5 to drop in the fall, but if Walmart is already trying to clear out old iPhone stock, maybe we'll see the next iOS smartphone sooner than later.

It's a little curious that it seems like these price cuts are just for the AT&T version; maybe Verizon and Sprint models will be included with this slash goes into effect, but it's tricky to say at this point. Anyone want to take bets about a new iPhone being announced at WWDC, or are we just going to see iOS 6?

UPDATE: Aaaaand it turned out to be a pricing error. Carry on, as you were.

Walmart to cut price of AT&T iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S

I think it's important for iMore to not descend into rumor-mongering. Let the rumor sites handle all that BS. You need to find a happy medium between scooping other sites with actual news and confirming stories before you post them.
Re: "While the price cut isn’t a huge deal in and of itself, it does suggest that a new iPhone is right around the corner."
See what I mean? A pricing mistake leads to the false assumption that Wal-Mart has intentionally cut iPhone 4S prices, which leads to a spurious "early 2012 iPhone" theory. Hey, it could all be true. But if not, it all just makes iMore look bad.

Surely better to put the "Update" at the top of the article?
Its a little annoying to read it (wild speculation, and all) and then find its been denied, and has thus wasted our time somewhat.
