Best Buy to Start Selling the iPhone 3G USA-Wide on Sept. 7

Finally. Finally! You'll be able to get your giant-sized HDTV $200 HDMI cables, chocolate frosted sugar bombs, and iPhone 3G all under one big, blue roof!

Yup, Apple Insider rumored yesterday, and now Associated Press has confirmed, Best Buy will begin selling 970 full-size stores and 16 smaller, but recently upgraded Best Buy Mobile stores, come September 7.

Says Shawn Score, president of Best Buy Mobile:

We had a lot of work to do, obviously, to get in a position where Apple and AT&T would feel good about Best Buy Mobile carrying it, and that's what we've done in the last 18 months

Back in late June, Dieter posted about this and the much more frightening rumor of Radioshack getting their "laughing stock" hands on it, so it's not a total shocker... just as long as the Quickymart doesn't get it next, b'okay?

I mean, El Jobso still personally authorizes each reseller based on some cosmic alignment of Feng Shui and color swatches, right?

  • I sure hope radioshack never sells them... every single radio shack i've ever gone to is filled with old hack jobs who think they know what they are talking about. I can't even walk into one anymore.
  • I wonder if this could be thing that finally gets the iphone officially offered in Puerto Rico. Apple has consistently told me that the only reason that the don't sell the iphone here is because they don't have officially licensed repair people in PR (there are a ton of holes in this argument - I'm just telling you what they told me). Best Buy is here in Puerto Rico as an officially licensed Apple retailer and service/repair center, so maybe this will finally do it.
    Either way, I already have an iPhone that I purchased state-side. It would be nice to see the rest of the island be able to get one as well. Even without Apple's official presence here, Puerto Rico is a hotbed for Apple sales. If the company would ever get their act together and pay attention to the island they would sell a ton of products. Currently they have not found a way to sell directly to Puerto Rico - a part of the U.S.A - yet they HAVE found a way to sell to a ton of other countries around the world. Pretty disappointing if you ask me.
