iPhone price cuts Radio Shack

Not really feeling the (alleged) new look of the iPhone 5? Absolutely need a new iOS handset this weekend? Then you may want to check out Radio Shack or Target tomorrow, as both retailers are reportedly planning price cuts for the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 tomorrow. According to a leaked screenshot sent to Engadget, Radio Shack will be slashing the price of the 8GB iPhone 3GS to $19.99, while AT&T's 16GB and 32GB iPhone 4 will be priced at $169.99 and $269.99, respectively.

If you need to pick up some kitty litter and a few t-shirts along with your new handset, Phone Arena is reporting that Target will also be pricing the 3GS at $19.99 while the 16GB iPhone 4 for both Verizon and AT&T will be reduced to $149.99. Verizon's 32GB iPhone 4 will reportedly be cut to $249.99, but AT&T's 32GB model is said to be staying at $299.99 for some reason. It's also rumored that iPhone 3GS owners will be able to trade in their non-Retina iPhone in to Target and save an additional $100 on the purchase of a new iPhone 4.

Despite the fact that the majority of us would probably rather rough it with a Motorola StarTac than commit to a contract with a phone whose successor is right around the corner, a lot of folks would be perfectly content with a discounted iPhone 4 at this point. These price cuts may also be good news for those of you that'd rather hold out for Apple's next smartphone, though, as it could be taken as evidence that a new iPhone isn't far off. Good news all around, right?
