What? If there's any corporation with the resources to give a legitimate discount like this, it's WalMart.

I can see the motivation, though, being to use their massive assets to leverage themselves far above their competition like Best Buy and Radioshack...but what's new there.

This is actually a very big deal since Apple does NOT slash prices for devices they sell to retailers. Margins are razor thin for the carriers (from what I hear) on actual hardware sales.
