There has been much of a rumor that Wal-Mart would soon be carrying the iPhone. The rumor that the mega-store would soon be selling the almighty iPhone will finally come true by the end of December. Employees at five different Wal-Marts in the cell phone department were contacted independently and each verified that training was occurring for the iPhone and that a likely timeline for end of December was expected.
The idea of a $99.00 iPhone is still floating around but there has not been any announcement or confirmation that the iPhone will drop to that price. Many analysts believe it is inevitable that Apple will drop the price to $99.00 to help boost sales and expand its user base. It should be mentioned that the $99.00 price point has not been denounced by any party and is still a possibility considering Wal-Mart's budget friendly prices.
Apple currently only sells the iPhone at its retail stores and BestBuy. Wal-Mart will open up new sales avenues which will boost its already expansive user base. Keep an eye out at big blue and let us know if you spot any Apple iPhones at Wal-Mart.
