Since its introduction, it hasn’t been a challenge to get your mitts on an iPhone. Still, additional purchasing options never hurt.
According to The iPod Observer, Apple is now allowing the iPhone to be sold through consultants and other value added providers currently participating in the Apple Authorized Business Agent Program.
The change, which might be seen as a ramping up in production for the iPhone, could also be an effort to test the waters before instituting a wider-scale iPhone sales program. Should such an effort prove successful, iPhone sales could then expand into additional channels such as online and catalog-based authorized resellers.
To date, Apple has sold approximately 270,000 iPhones and expects to sell one million units by the end of its September quarter.
