Best Buy will sell iPhone 3G

Starting Sept. 7 consumers will be able to pick up an iPhone 3G at their local Best Buy store. The retailer will be the first to sell the popular device in the U.S. outside of Apple and AT&T stores. 

The iPhone 3G will be available at all Best Buy stores except a few which are located in areas where AT&T's wireless service isn't available.

Best Buy has been trying to establish itself as a leader in wireless retail sales by expanding its wireless product lines and establishing cell phone departments in its U.S. stores. The retailer's iPhone price will match that of AT&T and Apple: $199 for the eight-gigabyte model and $299 for the 16-gigabyte model with a two-year contract.
