iPhone 3GS down to $97 at Wal-mart

Here's your chance to get your hands on a cheap iPhone deal.

Wal-mart has dropped the price of the 16GB iPhone 3GS by $100 to $97. Of course, to get this deal you do have to sign up to a 2-year AT&T contract. Oh, and a new iPhone is probably just around the corner.

Handsets are not available online, only in-store.

It seems that Apple has also stopped shipping the older 8GB 3G handsets to AT&T. This really is a no-brainer since the older handset can't make use of some of the newer features that will form part of iPhone OS 4. Apple really doesn't want three generations of handsets in the market.

So, anyone picking up a cheap iPhone?
