iPhone at Wal-Mart on Sunday

According to Yahoo News:

FA4880AC-B4C4-4E21-9971-9E439B75B80A.jpg“Wal-Mart will start selling Apple’s popular iPhone on Sunday, the chain said, confirming earlier reports by employees.

Bentonville-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will become the second independent retail chain after Best Buy Inc. to sell the phone. It is also sold at Apple Inc. and AT&T Inc. stores.

Wal-Mart will sell the phones for $2 less than the regular price with a two-year contract: $197 for the 8-gigabyte model, or $297 for the 16-gigabyte model. Best Buy is discounting the phone by $9.

Reports that Wal-Mart would sell the phone, but not the exact launch date or the terms, surfaced early this month through store employees who had been briefed.”

The savings are minimal! Why bother?

Wal-Mart is last but not least – no go HD DVD

Wal-Mart Drops HD DVD In June 

Wal-Mart  – Drops it like it’s Not

Looks like Toshiba had better put HD DVD out of its misery with news trickling out that Wal-Mart will not restock its shelves with HD DVD players and movies by the time June rolls around, following similar decisions made by Netflix and Best Buy. It seems as though there is no way out of this dark pit for HD DVD – let us have a minute’s silence out of respect for this format.(Via Ubergizmo.)
