WalMart May have iPhone 3G[ps] for Black Friday

With the iPhone 3G's integrated GPS, it still isn't a turn by turn directions master replacing the Navigation Device that you probably have or want on your dashboard, but it is seeing several applications that make good use of that GPS. RunKeeper is a good example of fitness tracking, while there are several Geocaching applications that can keep you going in the woods (as long as you have a cell signal).

Well, it looks like WalMart might be offering the iPhone for the big Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. It is said that they will be activating it in the stores, just like BestBuy and the phone stores. Personally, I think that standing in an activation line at WalMart on Black Friday is not what Steve Jobs had in mind for a customer experience when he first had iPhone users activate them easily and quickly through iTunes when they got home.

We've had some pretty good coverage for GPS Deals on Black Friday last year, and the year before and will be gearing up to cover all the GPS deals this year for Black Friday.
