Apple "Starting today, Walmart has dropped prices on both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, with the 16 GB iPhone 5 now on sale for just $127 and the iPhone 4S coming in at $47." I'm sure a 33% price cut right ahead of the holidays is totally normal for a product of which demand outstrips supply. Right?

They probably build up a small inventory for them to advertise with to draw crowds to their shops. Most people won't be able to get a cheap(er) phone, but hey maybe they'll buy something else.

My wife too has become the 'victim' a couple of times of stores advertising stuff and then it turns out not every story has the product and when you find one that does they are already sold out before noon. When you interrogate the staff it turns out they only had a stock of... two.

iOS devices are the hottest Christmas gifts and shops want people in their shop, not somebody else's.
