The novelty of the iPhone has passed--for the people who could afford one, at least. Now, in a deal directly with Apple, Walmart will sell brand new iPhones for $197/$297 (8GB/16GB).

If you're still reading, I'll tell you about the best deal in town though: AT&T is selling refurbished 8GB iPhones for $99!
