iPhone Goes to the Dogs 

Published September 15, 2010 at 6:05 a.m.

Vermont's Small Dog Electronics has inked a very sweet deal with computer giant Apple — they can sell the iPhone.

Until a few week ago, only authorized Apple and AT&T stores were allowed to sell the phone.

Small Dog has been lobbying Apple officials for years to sell the phone.

Starting in early September, Small Dog began selling the phones in their stores in Waitsfield and South Burlington. Small Dog is opening a new store in Manchester, NH in October, and hopes to have them in stock and for sale there, too.

"It has been a long time coming, nearly five years from when we first learned that the iPhone would not be made available for Apple's independent resellers," Small Dog's Founder Don Mayer told Seven Days in an email. 

Mayer said he knows of only two other independent resellers who have been given the same deal as Small Dog.

"Working with AT&T and Apple I am very proud to be one of the very few independent resellers that now has the iPhone available," added Mayer. "This means a lot to Small Dog Electronics, not because we make a lot of money on selling the iPhone because we do not, but because we are committed to offering the complete Apple solution to our customers. Our customers never understood (and neither did we) why we didn't have the iPhone and now we can offer the complete solution."
