Amazon sells virtually everything, but it has never offered the newest iPhones on its site, a testament to the complicated relationship it has with Apple. Apple is selling its new iPhones through every major retail site except one -- the biggest one. It seems strange that of all the sellers of consumer electronics, the world's most popular online retail site doesn't feature Apple's iPhone. The device-maker has deals set for all the other top retailer: Best Buy, Walmart, Target. Even retailers that are seen as struggling, such as Staples and Radio Shack, get the chance to hawk the phones. The unusual exclusion underscores the complicated, and often disjointed, relationship between consumer electronic companies and Amazon, which itself has gotten into the hardware business with e-readers, tablets, and now smartphones. The issue could go back to 2007, when Apple introduced the original iPhone and Amazon decided to get into the hardware business with the first Kindle e-reader.
