Another popular smartphone set to hit Wal-Mart Dec. 28

Wal-Mart announced that it has reached an agreement with Apple to offer the iPhone 3G, in-store only, in Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart-managed Sam’s Club Connection Centers nationwide beginning Dec. 28. Of course, AT&T will support the stores with the activation process. It looks like about 2,500 locations will offer the phone. Both organizations are tight-lipped as to whether or not the iPhone will be offered at a discounted price, likely to avoid slowing MSRP iPhone sales during the holidays. I don’t know about you, but I would be pretty peeved if I bought little Timmy an iPhone for Festivus only to find out three days later that the phone is available at Wal-Mart for less. I’m thinking you might want to hold out and buy the phone with your holiday money. Wal-Mart –the only store where can you buy seafood, baby clothes, a set of tires, a beta fish and an iPhone!
