iPhones at Business Agents

Apple has expanded sales of the iPhone beyond its website, retail stores and AT&T, and is now including them in its Authorized Business Agent program. Agent customers still, ultimately, receive their products from Apple, but they purchase from an online, third-party storefront, for which the vendor receives a small fee each time a product is sold. Vendors also get access to business coupons and Apple marketing material. One of the first companies to sell the iPhone in this manner is Digital Design Solutions, based in Atlanta, Georgia. Prices are identical to any other location. Update: Apple has since removed the iPhone from the Apple Authorized Business Agent Stores online. (cont.)

"The iPhone was available for about one day via the Apple Authorized Business Agent Stores online," the company wrote in a correction notice to MacNN. "We are unsure as to why this has been removed at this point in time. This could have been an error altogether, or this could be an indication that the iPhone will be coming to this distribution channel in the near future."

    Something doesn't compute...

    I'm not seeing the iPhone on an AABA store page I have access to...

    Searching for "iPhone" gives you about 2 pages of hits, but no iPhone.

    I'd say this was a coding error that has since been corrected... unfortunately...

    Would love to be wrong.
