Rumor: WalMart To Get iPhone 3G In November
Back when it was first announced that BestBuy would be carrying the iPhone, the natural assumption was that RadioShack would be next, but now BGR claims that WalMart will in fact be the next third-party retailer to carry the device. They claim that one of their “ninjas” got inside info from a good source saying that they will be offering the iPhone 3G on November 15.
The move makes some sense given that Black Friday is only two weeks later. Offering them in WalMarts around the US would definitely help ease up congestion caused by iPhone-seeking gift buyers come holiday time. Still, it is a little unusual given that Apple still requires the device be activated before it leaves the store.
