News, Rumors

Barron’s reports:

Apple could eventually sell some Macs in Wal-Mart stores, “which could significantly increase distribution and unit shipments,” Barclays Capital analyst Ben Reitzesasserted in a research note this morning. “While we don’t expect an immediate impact this year and believe Apple would need to reposition its line-up first, we believe that closer ties to Wal-Mart makes sense.” He says more accessories are showing up on Wal-Mart shelvesafter a successful launch of the iPhone in the discount retail giant’s stores. The retailer also sells iPods.

The store within a store concept seems to be doing quite well at Best Buy, so it makes sense that Apple would be looking to extend its reach even further.
