Might this be an indicator of America's new post-partisan landscape? It's hard to think of two brands whose images are more opposed than Wal-Mart and Apple—one is cheap, unsexy, suburban, while the other is sleek, expensive, and cosmopolitan—but the two are partnering up. Wal-Mart has begun training its employees to sell the iPhone, which will hit its shelves this month. Wal-Mart is only the second mass-market retailer, after Best Buy, to sell the iPhone. There are unconfirmed reports that Apple will sell a 4GB iPhone at Wal-Mart for $99 with a two-year contract. When Apple sold a 4GB model in its first generation of iPhones, the price was $399.
