Apple placing the brakes on the iPhone 3G 8GB model?
It surely had a good run and brought along the faster speeds of 3G, but it's speculated that the iPhone 3G 8GB model will no longer be shipped to AT&T stores. BGR is reporting that there are also no additional orders being placed for the smartphone that still continues to be purchased by customers looking to get a fix with an inexpensive iPhone model. Although it surely will be missed, it could potentially signal the onset of seeing the 16GB version of the iPhone 3GS model drop to the attractive $99 price point whenever the next generation iPhone begins to infiltrate the market. It truly would've been something if Apple did decide to keep the 8GB iPhone 3G model and possibly drop its price to free – which could virtually make it a tough proposition for others to compete and follow suit.
