Walmart to carry Verizon iPhone in 600 stores starting February 10

Walmart has announced that beginning tomorrow, February 10, it will begin carrying the Verizon iPhone for sale in almost 600 of its retail stores. According to MacRumors, Walmart is the latest retailer to join Apple, Verizon and Best Buy in offering up the VZW iPhone 4 for sale, even if it is only going to be available inside a fraction of its 8,800 worldwide retail stores. However, with Walmart's reach, you can be sure that the sales record Verizon set on the first day of iPhone sales of over 500,000 units will look like peanuts in the coming weeks.

While the iPhone is available for online orders starting today at both the Apple Store and at Verizon, retail sales at brick and mortar stores don't begin until tomorrow.

Will you be picking up your very own VZW iPhone in the near future? Or have you gotten yours already? If so, and if you are new to the iPhone family, you should definitely check out Erica Sadun's Verizon iPhone 101: What new owners need to know to get started to get your iPhone ownership experience off on the right foot.
