Big box retail chain Best Buy has announced that it will offer the Verizon iPhone in its stores. According to the release, the iPhone 4 on Verizon Wireless will be available in both Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile outlets beginning on February 10, the same day that the device launches. “The iPhone 4 is an important device for Best Buy and we are excited to help Apple and Verizon Wireless bring it to even more consumers,” said Shawn Score, president of Best Buy Mobile. “Our customers have come to expect Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores to carry the best selection of mobile phones anywhere, and offering the iPhone 4 on Verizon’s network is our latest effort to deliver on that promise.” Apple announced earlier this morning that it will begin accepting online orders on February 9 for delivery or reserve for in-store pick up.
