Walmart to sell iphones along with Bestbuy
Wal-Mart is set to join Best Buy as yet another retailer selling the iPhone, outside of the obvious Apple and AT&T locations. According to a report by BGR, they have internal communications that indicate the retail giant will begin selling the iPhone 3G on December 28th.
Yes, that is weird. That's the first thing I thought. Why start selling it after Christmas? You'd think, particularly in such a poor retail economy, Apple would want the iPhone 3G in Wal-Mart stores during the holiday shopping season, if possible. On the other hand, this is forecast to be an extremely poor season, anyway.
Some 2,500 Wal-Mart locations will offer the device, according to the site, as well as 69 Sam's Club locations. Catch full story from Techexpert.
