Sits alongside Walmart, Apple
Best Buy will start taking pre-orders for the iPhone 4 on Tuesday, June 15th, according to an announcement. Aside from the retailer's regular stores, people will also be able to fill out orders at specialized Best Buy Mobile outlets. The iPhone 4 will ultimately ship on June 24th.
The company is joining Walmart, Radio Shack and Apple itself in selling the new iPhone. Walmart is not taking pre-orders; while Radio Shack may be participating in that regard, it has not made a formal announcement. Pricing should remain consistent across the board, about $199 for 16GB and $299 for 32GB, as connected to AT&T's upgrade arrangements.
