Best Buy will sell the iPhone 3G starting next month


Best Buy will be the first non-Apple or AT&T store to carry the iPhone 3G. The phone that many people on Twitter complain is broken will be available in regular Best Buy stores as well as Best Buy Mobile starting on September 7.

This news is largely irrelevant to people who have an Apple retail store or AT&T within driving distance, but think of Middle America, or Flyover Country: how many Apple stores are out there? Meanwhile, Best Buy is like the Wal-Mart of electronics—they’re all over the place.

All of this should do wonders to make Apple’s goal of selling, what, 10 million iPhones this year alone.
