Buy iphone 3g from Amazon Prime Day, Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now

If you were one of the many who was all excited about the prospects of an iPhone at Walmart for only $99, you are out of luck. It has been confirmed that Walmart is getting the iPhone 3G, but at a discount of a measly $2 over other providers.

Trust me when I say saving $2 by buying something as technical as the iPhone from Walmart is not a good idea. I watched a Walmart phone sales person struggle to explain a basic Nokia handset just last week to a lady. I shudder to think what would have happened with a more complex device like the iPhone.

Still, I have no doubt that offering the iPhone in the massive retailer will help iPhone sales; I am convinced this is what helped Acer's Aspire one netbook grab the top spot on the netbook sales charts. With a Jobs-less MacWorld keynote this year perhaps all we can hope for is a new 32GB iPhone 3G, which would result in the 8Gb iPhone 3G dropping to $99.
