Rumors that Target will begin selling Apple’s iPad on October 3rd are now being confirmed by reports from The Associated Press. The rumors initially originated earlier in the month from screenshots of Target’s inventory system as shown above.
“The nation’s second-largest discount chain says it will start selling touchscreen tablet computer Oct. 3. The iPad will be covered under the retailer’s 5 percent discount for store credit-card holders, which rolls out Oct. 17. Target hopes the combination of the hit device and the discount will bring in shoppers during the holidays.”
If the rumors are true, Target would officially be the largest retail chain to offer the device. Multiple sources are claiming that Target will carry all three Wi-Fi models, but only offer one Wi-Fi + 3G model. However, no word on exactly what model that would be, although it would presumably be the entry-level model.
