If you're still on the fence about upgrading from your iPhone 4S (or, do we dare say, 3G?), Walmart is about to give you the best reason yet to finally get a new iOS device.
The retailer is putting the iPhone 5C up for sale at a low, low price of just $27 with a two-year contract. That's about a 75-percent drop from its previous price of $99. The price drop isn't exactly popping up out of no where: the iPhone 5C hasn't been selling as well as expected, while the more expensive—and more powerful—iPhone 5S has been the primary choice of buyers. In response to the less-than-stellar 5C sells, Apple told manufacturers shortly after the device's launch that they should cut their 2013 shipments down significantly. Not to say that the 5C is a bad phone, but, simply, it's a plastic version of the iPhone 5 with pretty colors—and it wasn't enough to get users buying.
Walmart is also cutting the price of the 5S to $127 from $199 with a two-year contract, and the 16GB iPad Mini will go for its regular price of $299, but the retailer will throw-in a free $50 gift card with a purchase.
The sale begins tomorrow and ends Christmas Eve, so perhaps if it's not for yourself, it might make a good holiday gift.
