Last week, BGR reported a rumor that Walmart would be selling the iPhone 3G, and another that the line-up would include the reappearance of a 4GB model at a $99 price point. Now Bloomberg has confirmed that employees are undergoing iPhone sales training, but there's still no proof of a $99 iPhone.
Last month BGR got word that Walmart might start selling the iPhone 3G in the U.S. on December 28. Now they have a tip from another source (whom they note isn't on their list of credible ninjas) taking the rumor one step further, saying that not only will Walmart be getting the 8GB and 16GB iPhone 3G, but will also have a 4GB for just $99.
Boy Genius Report has gotten information from several sources fleshing out the details of the rumored WalMart iPhone launch. According to the anonymous tipsters, the iPhone will launch on December 28 in 2,500 locations. Some stores will also be getting display units like Best Buy.
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.
