Best Buy cut iPhone 3G price: 8GB for $190, 16GB for $290

Walmart may be getting all the coverage when it comes to the iPhone 3G lately, but Best Buy don’t want you to forget that they’ve been selling the Apple smartphone for some time now.  Just to hammer that point home, the retailer is cutting the price of both 8GB and 16GB iPhone 3G handsets by $10, in an offer valid until the end of the year.

That brings the price down to $189.99 for the 8GB handset and $289.99 for the 16GB version.  Best Buy will also throw in free Walk-out-Working service, which sets up your email, transfers all your contacts over from your old cellphone and generally tells you how to use your new iPhone 3G, as well as double Reward Zone points.

In fact they’ll go so far as to charge your iPhone up before you leave, so if you’re dreading this month’s electricity bill then I guess that could be a draw as well.  The new deal is affective immediately, in Best Buy stores; I wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple promise to match it.
