4 days after AT&T slashed the price of the iPhone 3GS, it’s now Apple who’s discounting the previous iPhone model to the same $49 price tag. I think this move isn’t so much related to the Verizon iPhone being announced tomorrow, but rather to getting rid off their old inventory.

If you don’t care about owning the latest and bestest, then the iPhone 3GS at $49 is a hell of a deal. If like me you do like to get the latest gadget, you may want to wait until June/July, when the iPhone 5 will be released… 

Oh yeah, and this cheap baby comes with a 2-year ball and chain contract with AT&T. You ready for that?
