iPhone coming to Target stores?

updated 01:45 pm EDT, Wed October 13, 2010

Would form part of cellphone expansion

Target will begin carrying the iPhone in the near future, sources tell AppleInsider. The big-box retailer only recently began selling the iPad, expanding an existing selection of Apple gear. The iPhone would tie into the addition of cellphone centers at 850 Target outlets, just in time for the holiday shopping season. The program is being run in cooperation with Radio Shack, which is providing the system needed for in-store activations.

Because the centers themselves lack a completion date, the timeline for an iPhone launch is equally nebulous. A Target representative will neither confirm nor deny any iPhone plans. The company has "nothing to announce at this time," according to the person.

Apple has been moving rapidly to expand the retail reach of its products, presumably with holiday sales in mind. The bulk of efforts have concentrated on the iPad, which has for instance become available at a wider number of Best Buy shops. Walmart will get the device this Friday, and Sam's Club should get it in the near future.
