November 15th. Mark it on your calendar. That is the date when the iPhone is coming to Wal*Mart according to BGR. While it may sicken a few of you to have your precious Jesusphone in the hands of Joe Six-pack, it does open a lot of revenue and marketshare opportunities for our favorite company. It also puts Apple in front of many more faces for the holiday buying season. With the economy in a slump, that doesn’t hurt.
That market share also extends to iPhone developers who will have a much wider audience of customers from which to sell their wares. Is there a NASCAR app yet? Get crackin’!
With Apple/AT&T’s home pre-activation plans, the process will be easier than before (but still harder than gen 1) and Wal*Mart won’t have too much of a learning curve for their uninsured employees to have to train on.
No word yet on when/if Radio Shack will be joining the party.
