Newer sources are backing last week’s reports
that Walmart will begin carrying the iPhone later this month. According to both Reuters
, store representatives at several Walmart locations have confirmed that the iPhone is due by the end of December and that sales training is already in progress.
The $99 4GB iPhone model hasn't been confirmed, though, and that rumor is looking more unlikely now with a clerk from a Vacaville store suggesting that the phones will be the same 8GB and 16GB models sold elsewhere. Moreover, Mac Rumors
claims they have received training material and advertising from a source connected with Walmart that lists only the 8GB iPhone 3G.
The device will supposedly go on sale at Walmart beginning on December 28 for $197, narrowly beating Apple and AT&T's $199 price.
