If you go online to the Apple stores in the US this morning, you will see that the iPhone 3G is still listed, but you can’t actually buy it, as Apple has removed that option from the US store, does this mean that Apple has discontinued the iPhone 3G?
We just checked the UK Apple store and the iPhone 3G is still available for sale with Orange, but it isn’t available for sale with O2, this could mean that Apple are clearing out stocks of the iPhone 3G and as soon as they are gone the iPhone 3G will be discontinued.
We have already seen the price of the iPhone 3GS drop in the US, as it is now available for $97 from Walmart. Apple are expected to announce the next generation iPhone at their World Wide Developer Conference on June the 7th.
If you are in the market for an iPhone at the moment we would recommend waiting until then, even if you don’t intend to buy the next generation iPhone, and want an iPhone 3GS we could very well see a price drop worldwide of the 3GS when the next generation iPhone is announced.
