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.
