In an effort to reach out to even more consumers, Apple has started to distribute the iPhone 3G to Best Buy stores across the country.

Rumor has it that RadioShack was expected to be the next chain to carry the 3G, but nothing has come into fruition.

Meanwhile, super conglomerate Wal-Mart is expected to be the next store to sell the iPhone with a proposed drop date of November 15, mere weeks before Black Friday.

Do you think the decision to sell the iPhone in a store such as Wal-Mart will cheapen (or even tarnish) the iPhone?  Or do you view it as essential to putting even more of a stronghold on the market?
