Wal-Mart now selling iPhone 3G

As expected, Wal-Mart began selling iPhone 3Gs yesterday. The retailer is now offering the handset in roughly 2,500 stores, at prices of $197 for the 8GB model and $297 for 16GB versions. Wal-Mart is the second independent retailer and fourth overall to sell the iPhone 3G, following Best Buy, AT&T, and Apple.

With Wal-Mart and its large base of customers along with the iPhone being a household name, I think this is a win for all sides. However I feel there could be a downside to this and it is due to the 3G service. For example, in North Carolina (were I live) 3G is only available in the Raleigh-Durham, Charlotte, Jacksonville, and Fayetteville areas, leaving lots of non-3G area in between. Why would you want to pay for an iPhone if the 3G service isn’t in your area?
