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?

I thought a "luxury item" in economic terms was anything that wasn't a homogenous item and the price *isn't* set by supply and demand. Luxury items can differentiate themselves amongst other things by brand and demand a premium. By that definition, both Samsung and Apple smart phones are clearly luxury items.
