You saw this coming, didn’t you? After Apple expanded the retail presence of its popular tablet by bringing it to the Amazon online store and to Target, now word is in that the iPad could be making it to the shelves of the popular American discount store, Wal-Mart. That could be as early as next week. According to reports on MacRumors, the popular chain shall be stocking the iPad in as many as 1000 of their retail outlets with 800 more outlets expected to sell the iPad in time for the holiday shopping season next year.
There is a bit of disappointment though. Users may not be getting any actual discount on the retail price at Wal-Mart. Spy shots that MacRumors has gotten hold of shows that the price of the iPad models are pretty much the same as they are available elsewhere – between $499 and $829. Nevertheless, there is a likelihood for discounts to be made available after the iPad gets some real competition from the Galaxy Tab as well as when the shopping season gets into full flow. Hopefully.
