2008 iPhone 3G Now Priced to Move! $99 Starting Today!
When Tim Cook said Apple wasn't going to leave a price umbrella for the competition, did anyone really think he meant the (as of this writing still) current 2008 iPhone 3G would sell for $99 on contract?
Of course, exact pricing will vary by region/carrier and eligibility, contract-wise. Still, if a new customer can walk in AT&T, drop $99, and walk out with a still highly functional iPhone 3G with free upgrade to 3.0...
Who knows how long it will last, so if that's your magic number, go get it (opens in new tab)!
