3GS could become 'new' cheap iPhone

Apple has stopped iPhone 3G shipments to AT&T stores, sources tell the Boy Genius Report. The carrier's outlets are moreover said to be avoiding new orders, suggesting that the iPhone 3G is reaching end-of-life as a first-run product. The device could continue to be available for a short time as a refurbished option, though likely only through AT&T.

Originally launched in 2008, Apple has kept the 3G around as a cheaper, $99 alternative to 2009's iPhone 3GS, which costs a minimum of $199 for a 16GB model. The 3GS could potentially assume the role of its predecessor, selling alongside a new device with flash, a video call support and a superior display. Apple is generally expected to announce the phone at June 7th's WWDC keynote.
