    If you are looking for the latest Apple gear for the holidays and want to save a bundle, then this weekend you will probably want to take a trip to WalMart. Supposedly, the retailer will have the deepest discount in town for a host of Apple products. Here's a breakdown of the ridiculous deals WalMart might have:
    • iPhone 5 = $127 on a new contract
    • iPhone 4S = $47 on a new contract
      [*]iPad 3rd Generation = $399.99
    These are obviously incredible deals on the hotest mobile tech in the world. We aren't sure how WalMart is able to have deals like this, but we aren't going to look a gift-horse in the mouth.

    [Update: It looks like the Walmart deal was misreported by several other news sites, and we followed suit. The pricing has been updated now. Apparently the iPad for $399 was the 3rd-gen and not the 4th-gen.]

      Hmmm....good tip, DGstorm!

      Hard to believe though that I had waited for 4 weeks for my iPhone and became lucky to find one last one at best buy back in November. This is great for those who would like to pick up the iPhone or iPad right now for less. Great timing!

      I didn't see the new iPad at 399.00. I thought I saw only iPad 2 16GB for 399.00.

      Now the question is, in the UK Asda is owned by Walmart, will they offer the same service or is this yet again another 'American' only offer!! I must admit that Asda has suffered from this amalgamation, so I won't hold my breath.

      So i take it this 4th gen doesent include the iPad with Retina?

      No, it doesn't.

      While it was reported elsewhere that Wal-Mart is discounting the recently announced fourth-generation iPad, a Wal-Mart spokesperson confirmed with CNNMoney that it is, in fact, the third-generation model, which has a less powerful CPU.

      Excerpted from here:

      It's a subsidized price offered on a two-year data contract in the U.S. Is there some way that will be worthwhile for you if in India? You'd have to pay a monthly data plan rate for two years in the U.S. to get the phone at the Wal-Mart price.

      These would be locked iPhones tied to the US cellular carrier you're required to sign a contract with, at least for the duration of the contract. These iPhones wouldn't be useable outside the US.
