Radio Shack gets iPhone

Published: February 26, 2010

One of the annoying things about the iPhone’s initial roll out was that it wasn’t available everywhere. Even some of the authorized AT&T dealers couldn’t sell the handset directly (though over time, the device became more available across different outlets).

Now there’s a new one to add to the bunch: Radio Shack has begun sending iPhones out to its stores across the country. The retailer offers devices across the major carriers, but until recently, wasn’t able to procure the Apple handset beyond a few limited locations in New York City and Dallas. (They carried the Apple smartphone as a trial last November.)

Says Chief Exec Julian Day, "We are currently implementing several hundred stores per week with a plan to have the product available in about 3,000 stores by the end of March." That’s a decent push for a phone that’s been out for a while. As for the future versions, it’s unclear whether those will be up for the grabbing at The Shack.
