Barron’s today has analyst Trip Chowdhry (sounds like a 9to5mac writer or Sarah Palin child!) giving credence to the fact that Apple will indeed be slashing iPhone prices in 2009 and slumming out its retail sales points.  And why not?  Put that thing in as many hands as possible we say!  Got to compete with the incumbents.  Will we see T-Mobile (or CDMA Verizon/Sprint) anytime soon?

According to Trip:

Apple, he says, is going to start selling iPhones via Costco at $149 starting in January.

The Wheat Chex is pure, educated speculation.
