iPhone 5 only a day away, even Best Buy reportedly getting ready...

If these pictures are accurate, and we're being flooded by so many tips this week it's getting harder and hared to parse, it seems like everyone and their biggest big box chain are getting ready for iPhone 5 tomorrow. These come by way of a Mobile Nations source, and, yes, the box clearly says iPhone 5, but who knows if that's an official name or just an in-store place-holder Best Buy is using?

One more picture below. We'll find out for sure when Tim Cook and co. take the stage.

Best Buy sells almost as many iPhones as Apple store, AT&T and Verizon sell way more than both

A survey of iPhone shoppers from December last year through February, reveals that 13% had bought their iPhones from Best Buy, while 15% had purchased theirs directly from Apple. Of course, carriers brought in the lion's share of sales; AT&T sold to 32% of those surveyed, Verizon claimed 30%, and Sprint a less-than-impressive 7%. The survey, conducted by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, also showed that online stores only accounted for 24% of sales, with regular brick-and-mortar establishments taking up the remaining 76%.

Apple Store-within-a-store coming to a Target near you

AppleInsider reports that Apple will be bringing mini "store-within-a-store" setups to 25 different Target locations around the country.

The initial opening would be a small start, given that Target, the second-largest discount retail chain in the US, operates 1752 stores in the US. Apple has opened 359 of its own retail stores globally, 245 of which are in the US.

Apple is likely just testing the waters with Target, which should ultimately help expand their reach in the retail space. Apple already does this at the largest electronics retail outlet, Best Buy, with around 600 mini "Apple Shops" that have been met with great success.
