This rumor was bound to spring up once again soon, and now people are claiming this to be true. I have done a little research of my own and to me this could actually be true. Think about it, they already sell the entire iPod line up, and they are Mac certified, it was just a matter of time that they went iPhone certified. Not only is this the only evidence, but Best Buy has announced that they are done upgrading their Best buy Mobile Departments. They might have had some iPhone 3G training as well. All employees have at least 80 hours of training in the mobile phone department.
Sources say that Apple has made a deal with Best Buy to sell the iPhone 3G in 970 Best Buy Stores and in 16 Best Buy Mobile specialty outlets. This wouldn’t be the first store outside Apple and it’s partners to sell the iPhone. Remember Carphone Warehouse also sells the iPhone. Sources say that Best buy will sell the iPhone 3G in September, and will announce this as early as next Wednesday.
