After the iPad hit the retail shelves at Wal-Mart and Target earlier, it looks like it is now the turn of the iPhone to do the same. Sources have now indicated that the popular retail chain, Target, should start stocking the iPhone at close to 850 of their stores before the holiday shopping season kicks off. This is being done with the help of Radio Shack. In fact, the company has been running a pilot program for the sale of iPhones on Target stores since October last year in close to 100 of the company’s stores.
In addition to Target, the iPhone is also expected to hit the shelves of Wal-Mart’s membership-exclusive chain, Sam’s Club. This is no speculation but a direct confirmation from the company during the recently held quarterly earnings call. The date of launch is not known as yet though.
