Add Best Buy to the list of iPhone 3G purveyors starting September 7. Per the WSJ: "Best Buy Co. said it will begin selling Apple Inc.'s iPhone next month, making it the first U.S. retailer besides Apple and its U.S. carrier, AT&T Inc., to offer the popular device...both the eight- and 16-gigabyte models of the 3G phone will be available at all Best Buy stores, except for a handful located in areas where AT&T's wireless service isn't available..." Customers will have to sign a two-year AT&T contract, and prices are the same—$199 for the 8 gig and $299 for the 16 gig. [WSJ]
