Apple products don't get discounted very often, so the news that Sprint is dropping the price of the iPhone 4S by $50 took a bit by surprise. Nonetheless, you can now get Apple's flagship phone starting at $149.99 (for the 16GB model) on the only US carrier still to offer unlimited data.

Apple products don't get discounted very often, so the news that Sprint is dropping the price of the iPhone 4S by $50 took us a bit by surprise. Nonetheless, you can now get Apple's flagship phone starting at $149.99 (for the 16GB model) on the biggest US carrier that still offers unlimited data. That $50 price drop comes regardless of whether you buy a black or white model and regardless of what storage capacity you opt for — 32GB models are selling for $249.99, with 64GB models sitting at $349.99. Note that you can only get this deal at Sprint's website; Apple's online store still lists the phone starting at $199.99 The iPhone 4 price remains unchanged at $99.99 for a 8GB model (and all prices of course come along with a new two-year contract).

While there's no official word on the next iPhone, it's hard not to look at this sale as a sort of "last gasp" for the product. The phone is already over 10 months old, and Apple has only kept one iPhone model around for longer than a year without introducing a new product. With the rumor mill squarely focused on September 12th as a likely introduction date for the next iPhone, Sprint users might be better off waiting another month to see what comes along.
