Apple's iPhone is now cheaper at a host of stores.
Over the weekend, Best Buy cut the price of Apple's iPhone 4 to $50 with a two-year contract, down from its original $100 price tag. Target has taken it one step further and cut the price of the iPhone 4S to $149.99 with a two-year contract, according to its mobile store. However, Target's weekly flyer, sent out yesterday, still lists the iPhone 4S at $179.99.

It's not immediately clear how long the new pricing will last.
