Wal-Mart to begin selling the iPhone 3G

Rumors that Wal-Mart will start selling Apple's iPhone 3G appear to be gaining credence, as Wal-Mart employees prep for the launch, according to reports.

The retailing giant will reportedly begin selling the phone the week between Christmas and New Year's Day. It would be the fourth retailer to sell the uber-gizmo, after Apple and AT&T Mobility stores, as well as Best Buy, which started selling it in September.

There are also reports that Wal-Mart will be selling a $99 4GB version of the phone. According to a report in the San Jose Mercury News, Kim Nguyen, the cell phone department manager at the Milpitas, Calif., Wal-Mart, said an AT&T representative told her that her store would be getting such a model.

Wal-Mart has not released any official details of the rollout. In November, Wal-Mart spokeswoman told FierceWireless that the company had made no official announcement about offering the iPhone.
