Right on the heels of the news that AT&T is slashing the prices on iPhone 3’s to clear out inventory for the coming iPhone 5, there is now news out that Verizon is following suit. Except this interesting twist from Verizon Wireless involves the dumping of iPhone 4 accessories and iPhone 4 accessory bundles.
Of course clearing out iPhone inventory – both iPhone 3 and 4 devices and accessories – seems logical in order to make room for the coming iPhone 5. But what’s interesting is when looked at a little deeper, you realize that if Verizon Wireless is dumping iPhone 4 accessories then we must know that the Apple iPhone 5 is going to have a different shape and design.
There’s been talk before about the iPhone 5 being thinner and lighter than the iPhone 4. And with Verizon Wireless dumping their accessory bundles, this seems even more logical.
If all of the iPhone 5 rumors are true, and the release date is somewhere around September, then you can expect to see a lot more dumping of older iPhone devices and accessories – especially if the iPhone 5’s design is dramatically different than all previous models.
