The iPhone 5 is the best selling iPhone ever. And it is getting better because it is getting cheaper! As Apple gets ready to release its latest versions of the iPhone, the iPhone 5S and the maybe even the rumoured iPhone 5C next month, the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 are now available at unbelievable prices.
Walmart offers one of the best iPhone deals that I have ever seen – the iPhone 4S at 39$ and the iPhone 5 at 129$! The only rider is that one must be eligible for an upgrade with their mobile carrier and on a two year contract. Amazingly, these deals are on permanently – or rather till Walmart comes up with a cheaper offer! If a person has an iPhone 4S in working condition they can also avail BestBuy’s amazing exchange offer. The iPhone 4S can be traded in for the iPhone 5 for free rather than the previous 200$.
As the time nears for the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C and the iPhone 6 to launch the older iPhones will continue to get cheaper. Just remember that this works both ways, so while holding out for a better deal on an iPhone 5 makes sense, old iPhones will be worth less at re-sale.… Read the rest

In yet another blow to the former favorite smartphone of the corporate world, Home Depot is bidding goodbye to the BlackBerry and replacing it with Apple iPhone 4S.

Why this news is a bigger blow to BlackBerry is the fact that Home Depot preferred a more outdated iPhone 4S to the newer BlackBerry 10 handsets like the Z10 and Q10.
However, the 60,000 Motorola phones being used on the store floor will stay on for some more time. But store managers across the 2,252 retail outlets of Home Depot will get to junk their BlackBerrys in favor of the iPhone 4S.
Even though BlackBerry 10’s launch garnered a lot of positive attention and the company may have had things looking up for it, this transition away from the BlackBerry by the world’s fifth largest retailer could be seen as a setback for it. This news may have hit the company especially hard given that it is desperately hanging on to its corporate customers for sustenance and has been hoping that the BlackBerry 10 would turn things around for it.
But not everyone is throwing out the BlackBerry just yet. In December 2012, the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency had decided to switch 17,600 employees from BlackBerry to Apple. But the agency decided to hold off and give the BlackBerry 10 a try before ending their arrangement with BlackBerry, making Apple miss out on a $2.1 million deal.… Read the rest
