So the earlier rumors were true after all. As we had noted in our article earlier this month, Apple is indeed expanding the retail availability of the iPad to Target. In the latest announcement, Target – the Minneapolis based retailer has announced that the tablet device from Apple shall be hitting their retail shelves starting October 3. All six models of the iPad shall be available for purchase and the prices of these units are likely to stay the same. However, if you do own a Target credit card, you are eligible to earn a 5% discount on the purchase of iPad until October 17.
Target has noted that their offering shall be extremely valuable for customers whose locations are not serviced by an Apple Store. However, Target won’t have it easy considering that Best Buy shall be expanding their iPad offering to all retail locations starting next week.
