Apple iPad 2 Hits 500 RadioShack Stores: Beat Online Order Deliveries

With iPad 2 well and truly settled in stores across 25 countries outside of America, for most the pre-delivery delays are at the back of their minds. For others that may have held on and waited for the barrage of eager purchasers to die down before making a play for their iPad 2, another outlet has just become active.

A report by BGR states that popular retailer RadioShack will be stocking the Apple tablet as of tomorrow in selected stores across the country.

On behalf of RadioShack, a spokesperson commented about the iPad 2’s introduction by saying “We are thrilled that iPad 2 will be available at 500 RadioShack locations across the country starting tomorrow, March 29.”

According to AppleInsider, RadioShack will be able to give information as to which store will stock the device closest to you at www.radioshack.com.

As of yet there is no mention as to stock levels that each store will receive, but the fact that another outlet in this case RadioShack has been accepted into the fold, suggests that Apple’s own replenishment supply has been updated enough to cope with the ongoing demand across the US and the rest of the world.

Apple and RadioShack’s companionship has been cemented further by the inclusion of the iPad 2, to join the iPhone that was introduced back in March last year.

With the iPad 2 reaching out to more retailers this can only benefit Apple’s seemingly aggressive approach in hitting their sales targets.

    I have put an iPad 2 32GB AT&T 3G on reserve at Best Buy two weeks ago and still no call. I also put one on reserve at a mac specialty store and nothing there. I went to the apple store two Saturdays ago at 7:30 AM to wait in line only to find out they gave out 8 tickets for all the ipad 2s that they had for the day and none were 3G. It's also curious that you cannot get an AT&T 3G model from an AT&T store. They can only order it for you and it takes a while.

    Strange deal…
