Wal-Mart to start selling iPhone Sunday

Wal-Mart on Friday confirmed that it will be selling Apple’s iPhone 3G beginning Sunday at about 2,500 stores. The price, with a new two-year service agreement with AT&T (or qualified upgrade), is $197 for the black 8GB model and $297 for the black or white 16GB version.

“We are delighted to bring customers this ground-breaking mobile technology,” said Gary Severson, Wal-Mart senior vice president of entertainment, said in a statement. “Our electronics associates have been preparing for many weeks for the arrival of iPhone 3G.”

And some of them, let the cat out of the bag a little early, as CNET News’ Marguerite Reardon noted several weeks ago.

The popular smartphones are currently available at Apple retail stores, AT&T stores and in Best Buy retailers, where the 8GB phone is sold for $199 and 16GB phones are sold for $299.

Wal-Mart’s iPhone offering amounts to a whole two dollars in savings and negates, for now anyway, the rumored 4GB model that some had speculated Wal-Mart would sell for $99.

Wal-Mart will be staffing Apple iPhone 3G kiosks located in the Walmart Connection Center in the store’s home entertainment department.
