iPhones at Wal-Mart Are Fine. But Steve Draws the Line at QVC.

Come late December, customers shopping at their local Wal-Mart (WMT) will be leaving the big-box retailer not just with vacuum cleaners and massage cushions, but with iPhones as well. Boy Genius reports that Apple’s (AAPL) iconic phone will begin arriving at select Wal-Mart locations on Dec. 28. “We are pleased to announce that Wal-Mart has reached agreement with Apple to offer iPhone 3G in Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart-managed Sam’s Club Connection Centers nationwide beginning December 28, 2008,” Wal-Mart explained in a memo to employees.
“AT&T (T) will support Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club with the activation process for iPhone 3G, and we need all National Retail employees engaged to ensure a successful launch.”
