Best Buy Mobile, the mobile specialty retail unit of Best Buy, will launch its iPhone 4 pre-sale tomorrow, June 15th. Customers can get their pre-sale iPhone 4 orders in at any Best Buy or Best Buy Mobile standalone store nationwide. Best Buy is trying to tempt customers to get the iPhone 4 from them rather than going anywhere else by saying that purchasing from Best Buy ensures that you avoid dealing with mail-in rebates, and that youll also be able to get on-the-spot advice from their highly trained specialists as well as shopping for accessories for your shiny brand new iPhone 4 while youre there.
Heres Shawn Score, president of Best Buy Mobile, talking about the retailers plans for the launch:
Your favorite local neighborhood Radio Shack has joined the likes of Best Buy, Apple, and AT&T stores as a place to pick up the new iPhone 4. This news come from a brief tweet this morning via the Radio Shack account.
YES! RadioShack will have #iPhone4 at launch. More info tomorrow.
Radio Shack just wrapped up the launch of the HTC EVO 4G and seems like it's trying to become the place known for all smart phones. They now sell phones for almost every carrier here in the US.

And all of that goodness will be wrapped up in an all-new design of aluminosilcate glass and stainless steel (five time stronger than standard steel), that is the thinnest smartphone in the world at 9.3 millimeters.
iPhone 4 also comes with iOS 4, which includes over 100 new features and 1500 new APIs for developers, and will be available on June 21st as a free software update via iTunes 9.2 or later for iPhone or iPod touch customers.
iPhone 4 will be available in the US, UK, France, Germany and Japan on June 24th, with prices starting at $199 for the 16GB model in the US for qualified buyers with a two year contract.
