Appleinsider reports that according to industry sources, RadioShack and Apple have partnered for RadioShack to carry Apple's full line of iPod music players during the 4th quarter of the year in time for the holiday season.
RadioShack reportedly operates nearly 7000 stores. The decision to carry the iPod line will be made on a store-by-store basis, but many of the locations are expected to carry the popular MP3 player.
RadioShack already sells HP branded iPods, but this will expand the line to the entire iPod family. Of particular interest, the rumor site reports that if iPod sales do well at RadioShack, there are plans in place to open a pilot program to test sales of Apple's Macintosh line as well.
