Apple iPhone 3G 8GB Orders No Longer Being Placed for AT&T

At this point, even if you don't count the countless sightings of the iPhone HD, there's enough evidence out there to suggest, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that a new iteration of the iPhone is coming. Sure, it could all be a bunch of nonsense, and people piecing up a puzzle that means ultimately nothing, but we're firm believers in what we can see. And, just like you, we've seen plenty. Take this for example: looks like AT&T is no longer placing orders for the iPhone 3G, 8GB version.

On top of that, and perhaps what's a bit more telling, is the fact that Apple has stopped shipping the handset to AT&T. Yes, these two things obviously go hand-in-hand; but, like the chicken and the egg, which came first? Was Apple already not sending handsets before AT&T stopped placing orders for them? Either answer would be quite revealing.

So, start the speculation wheel, ladies and gentlemen. Does this mean that the iPhone 3GS will get dropped down in price here in the near future? Or, will Apple make a rather bold move, and drop the iPhone 3GS just like it seems they're doing to the version before it? Either way, looks like they're trying to get rid of stock, and by not replenishing it, that's the best way to do it. We'll let you know as soon as we hear more. Not that we have long to wait, considering we'll be live at WWDC this year, so stay tuned, won't you?
