A picture’s worth a thousand words, so I’ll keep this brief. An anonymous tipster just sent us this photo of a promotional sign being unboxed on a lovely industrial carpet deep in the depths of, um, somewhere. The sign clearly advertises a one day only Best Buy Mobile deal on AT&T’s iPhone 3GS: Free with “2-year activation,” Monday, August 22 only.While this isn’t the first time the 3GS has been given away with a new contract, iPhone sales are still relatively rare. And this in a world where most phones’ carrier prices are slashed by third-party retailers almost immediately after they go on sale. So while this may just be part of a “One Day Only!” blowout sale at BBYM – one that could include deals on other phones as well – it could also be a way for the retailer to clear out remaining 3GS inventory in preparation for the impending iPhone 5 launch. Or iPhone 5 and “iPhone Lite Cheaper Version” launches, plural, if you subscribe to that theory.
