Best Buy to Sell iPhones


Starting some time after Labor Day, Best Buy will begin retail sales of the Apple iPhone.Until now, iPhones have only been available through Apple or AT&T. Adding the 970 Best Buy stores and 16 Best Buy Mobile Stores should help Apple realize its goal of selling 10 million iPhones this year. It will also mark the first time iPhones and other smartphones, such as the BlackBerry, have been sold side by side.

"We do believe that broadening our assortment and having iPhone in our stores is certainly going to be very important, said Shawn Score, Best Buy Mobile's president. "It solidifies us as the place to go for the cool stuff."ChannelWeb
