Walmart Slashes Price of the iPhone 5 to $129, iPhone 4S to $39

Starting today, Walmart is aggressively slashing the price of the iPhone 5 to $129 and the iPhone 4S to just $39, reports Mashable.

The retail price of the iPhone 5 is $199 and the retail price of the iPhone 4S is $99. To get the new pricing, customers will be required to sign a new two year contract with Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint.

Notably, Walmart is saying that this is not a limited time promotion.

We asked Walmart if the new pricing is temporary and were told that no, this is in fact the permanent price of the items. The new price is only available in Walmart stores and is not available online.

Historically Apple has limited the degree to which retailers can drop prices on their products, says the report. Although small price drops around $10 have been common, cutting the price by 30% for the iPhone 5 and nearly 70% for the iPhone 4S is unprecedented.

It’s thought that Apple may be allowing the lower pricing to better compete with the fresh new devices that its competitors will be selling this summer; or perhaps it’s looking to clear out some iPhone 5 inventory before the iPhone 5S arrives.

Leaked Photo of iPhone 5 Back Cover Was Taken With an iPhone 5!?

A recently leaked photo of the supposed iPhone 5 back cover may have actually been taken by an iPhone 5, according to some photoshop gurus at iFans.

While this isn’t a completely conclusive photo, we do believe that the camera used to take the photo was a working, prototype iPhone 5. Whether by accident or not, the photo was posted on Sina (the Chinese version of Twitter), and was picked up from there. Nobody else seemed to notice the reflection on the backplate, except for a few of our commenters (I didn’t notice it myself when I posted on it). This type of faking would take a lot of skill, time, and precision; more, I would think, than a prank would be worth.

You can check out the enhanced reflection below or hit the link for even more analysis images.

iPhone 4S/5 Will Be Released in June/July

Analysis of Apple’s quarterly guidance reportedly reveals that Apple will release the next iPhone in June/July rather than in September, according to SeekingAlpha’s Andy Zaky.

Arguments for June/July Release:

  • Consensus seems to be that Apple will be releasing a minor “4S” update. Unless Apple is planning something revolutionary there is no need to delay the cycle.
  • Apple is likely trying to throw reporters off due to the whole “prototype” debacle of last year. It’s possible that Apple could hold separate events in June. One for iOS and one for iPhone.
  • Rollout of an evolutionary iPhone 4S after the white iPhone 4 release would make sense. The White iPhone 4 would merely become the lower end version of iPhone 4 / iPhone 4S family of devices.
  • Apple significantly increased its guidance for operating expenses this quarter. Over the past two quarters Apple offered OpEx guidance of $2.325 billion for fiscal Q1 and $2.350 billion for fiscal Q2. For Q3 Apple has significantly updated operating expenses guidance to $2.5 billion.
