Walmart Reduces Price of the iPhone, iPad

Walmart continues its price wars, this time on Apple's iPhone and iPad.

The holiday 2012 shopping bargains did not end with Black Friday on the coveted new iPhone.

Walmart, in a move the week before Christmas, said it will begin selling the iPhone 5 for $127, which is $72 less than Apple's price when buying with a two-year contract with AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. The iPhone 4S can be had for a mere $47.

Also, Walmart has put the third-generation iPad on sale for $399. And if you buy one after Monday Walmart will throw in a $30 iTunes gift card. Unfortunately, the Walmart, in Quakertown on 309 is out of third-generation iPads, but has second and fourth generations in stock at regular price. 

The move comes just three months after Apple rolled out the latest version of its landmark smartphone.

This could mean that iPhone sales are lagging. The Los Angeles Times reported that a UBS analyst announced he was lowering his iPhone sales estimates for 2013, saying he expects Apple to sell 5 million fewer phones than his previous estimate..

Walmart told MacRumors that the sale is first come, first served - depending on inventory, and rain checks will not be issued.
