Report: Wal-Mart to sell iPhone 3G starting December 28

Wal-Mart will begin offering the iPhone 3G at select Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club locations on December 28, according to a supposed internal company memo posted online. The Boy Genius Report, which previously suggested the retailer would begin offering Apple’s handset on November 15, has posted the alleged leak, which states: “We are pleased to announce that Wal-Mart has reached agreement with Apple to offer iPhone 3G in Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart-managed Sam’s Club* Connection Centers nationwide beginning December 28, 2008.  AT&T will support Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club with the activation process for iPhone 3G.”

Wonder if the prices will be similar to the slightly lower prices they offer on iPods and Touch models.  Overall I’m still surprised to hear that iPhones are going to be available at Sams Club, but I hope this will mean they have iPhone compatible accessory bundles soon as well (like clock radios and speakers specifically).  Too bad this won’t be until after the holidays for us current iPhone users and potential buyers.
