With the launch of the iPhone less than a month away, Bear Sterns analyst Andy Neff has returned after a sit-down meeting with Apple executives Ron Johnson (the head of the retail division) and Tom Boger (the Director of the Mac Product Division) with news that the handset will be available in about 2,000 stores come the launch.
According to MacNN, the iPhone will be sold exclusively in Apple’s and AT&T‘s retail locations. This breaks down to approximately 160 Apple Store locations and 1,840 AT&T wireless shops.
“Apple affirmed its goal of June release for iPhone and expressed confidence in meeting its target of 10 million unit shipments in 2008 given iPhone’s superior user experience, which Apple referred to as ‘transformational,'” wrote Neff.
Neff added that for international store openings, the iPhone would first appear in regions with a high Apple installed base such as the United Kingdom and Japan and expand from there.
We’ll post more information on this as soon as it becomes available, but if you see or hear something cool from an Apple Store or AT&T location in the next few weeks, let us know.
