As Apple is preparing to meet a large demand for iPhone 4, Walmart can now be added to the list of distributors on the launch day of June 24, according to MacNN.
The reason for the move is an attempt to help Apple alleviate some of the stresses of good 'ol supply and demand, giving customers an opportunity to purchase the handset from multiple retail stores. Best Buy and Radio Shack are also ramping up to offer up the newest iPhone on June 24 as well.
This would be the first time that Walmart will be selling the iPhone on a launch day of the device. Before, only previous versions of the iPhone were made available by the company, much later on. We all remember the images of huge lines outside of AT&T and Apple Stores.
It should be noted though that Walmart will not be participating in pre-orders of the device, which are slated to start this coming Tuesday, through Apple as well as AT&T.
