Could it be that Walmart will pick up the iPad for sale before the end of the year? If you believe past reports from company execs… and with the holiday season coming up fast (not to mention the fact that other big retailers including Target and Amazon are already selling the ‘magical device’)… one would have to conclude that Walmart is missing out if they don’t move fast.
The good folks at TUAW reminded me that way back in May, Gary Severson (Walmart’s senior VP of Entertainment in the U.S.) told Bloomberg that he expected the iPad to make its debut on shelves ‘later this year’. Well, it’s now officially ‘later this year’, so we can only be left wondering if and when the iPad will make its appearance… if at all. With the holiday shopping season coming up on us fast, I’d have to think the iPad will be available in Walmart sooner rather than later. But we’ll see.
The list of stores carrying the iPad in the U.S. is growing steadily. Just the other day Target and Amazon announced the iPad is available and in-stock. But if those stores aren’t your favorite, you can also pop into a Best Buy or Micro Center location, or, one of those humble little Apple Stores I’ve been hearing so much about 😛
Next time you find yourself in a Walmart… watch out for falling iPads.
