Apple iPad Coming To Walmart Stores Oct 15

In a recent report we posted at the end of September, Walmart, the largest discount department store in America, was hoping to stock the Apple iPad by the end of 2010.

Fantastic news has filtered through today. Walmart have now announced that hundreds of its stores will be offering the tablet on Friday October 15. AppleInsider have reported that, it is hoped by the end of next month, some 2,300 of its stores will be retailing the device. Reports have confirmed that all six models of the iPad will be sold.

For those of you who are jumping up and down with today’s news, the option to purchase the iPad online from Walmart is available but it must be picked up in store. In preparation of the forthcoming launch, the tablet device can already be seen on the shelves next to Apple’s iPod Touch.

With the Apple iPad growing in popularity by the day, the holiday season upon us, and the tablet being sold in Walmart, Amazon, Target and Best Buy, Apple’s sales figures are sure to fly through the roof.

Will you be hot footing it down to your nearest Walmart to get your device, and what model will you pick up? Let us know. To check out more on this log onto AppleInsider
