The Associated Press reports that Target has officially confirmed that it will begin offering availability of the iPad on October 3rd.
The article's author seems to be confused, however, about Apple's lineup for the iPad, claiming that Target will offer four models: the three capacities of Wi-Fi-only iPad and "the Wi-Fi + 3G model". Apple of course offers the 3G-capable iPad in the same three capacities as the Wi-Fi-only models.The nation's second-largest discount chain says it will start selling touchscreen tablet computer Oct. 3. The iPad will be covered under the retailer's 5 percent discount for store credit-card holders, which rolls out Oct. 17. Target hopes the combination of the hit device and the discount will bring in shoppers during the holidays.
Target will be the largest retail chain to carry the iPad.
Screenshots from Target's inventory system that surfaced earlier this month indicate that all six iPad models will be available.
