Wal Mart shoppers, prepare for the Palm Pre in the electronics aisle?
This article contains unofficial information.
With Circuit City no longer in business, Wal Mart would like to grab the business that would have gone to the now bankrupt electronics retailer. For the world's largest grossing retail chain, that means improving the quality of the electronics that it offers. Brand names like Sony and Samsung have been added to inventory and earlier this year the Apple iPhone 3G was added to the slim selection of cellphones that is offered by the discounter. Being able to offer the Palm Pre could be the beginning of an effort by Wal Mart to become a legitimate destination for shoppers to find "Hot" cellphone models like Palm's much awaited handset.

Walmart should not sell phones as they r not trained properly, they will not provide the customer service that a Sprint store would and they just want to sell the phone and not help u out with it. Walmart should stick to food and other household items and leave the cell phone game to the experts.

Since when can you get customer service out of a Sprint Store either?

And on another note...what is this I hear of Verizon Wireless pulling out of certain WalMart stores in the south region? Anyone else able to confirm/deny?

Who cares? It's pay too much for what you get Verizon.
