Buy This Now On Amazon

The most current version of the #1 smartphone in the country now costs less than a PlayStation 2, if you buy it at Wal-Mart.
The iPhone 3GS, which costs almost $200 at most stores, after a 2-year AT&T contract subsidy, is now available at the nation's favorite discount retailer for just $97.

This comes as the next-gen iPhone, the so-called "iPhone 4G," is set to populate store shelves within the next month or two. Wal-Mart is obviously trying to catch as many "late adopters" of the 3GS as possible before they set their eyes on the new model.

It shows how mainstream the iPhone has come. When the first model launched around 3 years ago, consumers plopped down as much as $600. Now, two generations later, the most up-to-date model is less than a hundred bucks.

Of course, you still have to suffer through going to a Wal-Mart if you want one at that price.
