Apple’s next-generation iPad or iPad 2 to most of us, is definitely hotting up the tablet market. Let’s face it, we all knew that it would, but the introduction of yet another retailer will now increase its sales revenue even more. As of yesterday, Toys R Us will now be stocking the tablet plus accessories. Since its launch just over a month ago, the iPad 2 has hit many stores in some 25 countries although we had reported that Hong Kong was in fact still waiting for it to make an initial appearance.
Just at the start of this month, we gave you the news that Toys R Us were on the verge of taking on the iPad 2 with a release of next month, so it has in fact come early. According to AppleInsider, advertising for the tablet has already started, and along with the highly sought after device now being available so are the accessories such as the Smart Covers, VGA Connector and the Camera Connection Kit.
Good news for those of you who decide to purchase your tablet device in-store! Now at least you can have peace of mind that you will be able to pick up not only the iPad 2 but the accessories as well, something of which many of you are still waiting to receive. Some online orders are now being shipped out but at the start of this month, some of you were receiving the tablet but having to wait for the smart cover to follow.
Other retailers stocking the iPad 2 include RadioShack, Best Buy, Target, Walmart and so on.
