Buyers may have to wait until September 15th
New information on Walmart's iPhone 5 preorder plans has emerged, 9to5Mac reports. Leaked documents show that while the company originally advertised preorders starting at 8AM local time today, that timing has been pushed up until whenever each store gets the necessary reservation cards delivered. Each card costs $25, which counts toward the purchase price of an iPhone.
In some cases the cards are not expected to arrive until September 15th. Walmart is also cautioning that it can't guarantee that preorders will be available on September 21st, but does say it will hold each order at a store for up to 10 days after delivery. As is standard elsewhere, iPhone purchases are limited to two per person. For a bonus, though, the company is including $5 credit towards Walmart's online movie service, VUDU.
