If you bought one of the original iPhones for a whopping $599, you might want to stop reading now, because you aren’t going to like it. There’s a rumor floating around that Walmart, who’s going to start selling Apple’s flagship mobile device starting next year, is going to get an exclusive version of it. It’ll have 4GB of hard drive space and will be priced at a crazy-low $99.
Of course, as I said, this is pure rumor. Apple isn’t one to go creating special versions of its products for different retailers, but if it’s looking to really take aim at the low-end customer, this could be a good way to do it. Maybe it’ll be exclusive at Walmart for a time before becoming available elsewhere? Or maybe it won’t be exclusive to Walmart at all. Or maybe it won’t even exist. We’ll know soon enough.
