A circulating rumor suggests Best Buy is no longer selling the iPad 2 due to its sloppy sales practices. According to an unnamed source, the popular electronics retailer withheld its stock of the iOS tablet device when it reached its sales quota for the day. Once a store reached its limit, employees saved the remaining tablet units in inventory for the following day and turned away prospective customers looking for an iPad 2.
This policy of not selling every unit on hand angered Apple and the Cupertino company asked the retail chain to stop carrying the popular tablet. Tim Cook is supposedly involved in this disagreement and is working with the electronics retailer to negotiate an agreement. As always, this information is hearsay so take it with a grain of salt and consider it a rumor until Apple or Best Buy comes forward to shed some light on this situation. Until then, customers looking to snag the popular tablet would be wise to line-up in front of an Apple Store, Walmart or maybe even Toys R Us.
