Wal-Mart (WMT) is once more aggressively discounting iPhones (AAPL): the retail colossus is now respectively selling the 16GB iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S for $129 and $39 with 2-year contracts at its stores (but not online). Whereas Wal-Mart's prior discounts were deemed holiday promotions, the company says the new ones are permanent, which presumably means they'll last until the 5S launches (and older models see price cuts). Last time around, Wal-Mart suggested it wasn't solely footing the bill for its discounts; no word yet on whether that's the case this time.
