RadioShack runs temporary discounts on iPhone 4

Retailer RadioShack is offering a temporary promotion on Apple's iPhone 4, selling new units at a discount for the next two weeks.

While not quite the fire sale of a now more-than-year-old product, RadioShack is selling Apple's iPhone 4 at a discount for the next 12 days.

From now through August 20, RadioShack is cutting $30 off the price of Apple's iPhone 4, as well as the iPhone 3GS. Deeper discounts can be had if buyers bring in their iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS and use the company's Trade and Save program, which it's had going since before the iPhone 4 went on sale.

RadioShack and Target unofficially lowered pricing on phones at the end of last month, with those prices going into effect on July 31. Today's news puts an endmark on the deal, as well as adding the capability to stack those savings with the company's trade-in service.

Apple is expected to bring out an update to the iPhone just about any day now. Recent rumors have pegged the company's launch window for October, though a slew of reports from earlier this year said it would be sometime next month. The iPhone 4, which Apple sold more than 20 million units of in its most recent fiscal quarter, has been available since June of last year.
