Historically, AT&T's only allowed its treasured iPhone to be sold directory through its website and company-owned stores plus national partners Best Buy and Walmart, but times... well, they are a changin' -- and we're hearing now that certain authorized resellers will finally get in on the action starting November 1. To be specific, the top 20 agents will be invited to start stocking the various iPhone flavors in-store, which might signal AT&T's interest in keeping up the huge iPhone-specific numbers it posted for the third quarter this year. Question is, how will this play out when the next model comes out -- will it go back to being a COR exclusive?
