Move over Best Buy, you have some competition. According to the Boygeniusreport, Walmart will begin selling the iPhone this November, just in time for the busiest shopping season of the year.
“Making consumers lust after a device is the first step, however making the device available to them can be a greater challenge. By adding Walmart to the list of official iPhone resellers, Apple would be increasing the device’s presence, and simply be making it available in more places across the country. Still though, I can’t imagine Walmart being the “go-to” spot for iPhone purchases. I think it would be 3rd or 4th on the list, if only based on the level of service you would get while making the purchase. It’s uncertain whether Apple will remain adamant about requiring activation during the time of purchase, but if they are expecting a massive surge of sales at any particular time, we could see that rule bypassed. As we did when the iPhone 3G first launched in July.”
