∞ iPad arrives at Target stores

After confirming last week that it would begin selling the iPad, Target on Sunday rolled out its first batch of stock. [ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]There is no word on how sales are going at the stores, but it is only the first day. In all, the iPad will be sold in 1,743 Target stores across the U.S.

Target is carrying the 16GB Wi-Fi model, the 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi and the Wi-Fi+3G models. The stores are also equipped with a selection of accessories including cases, iBook and iTunes gift cards, chargers and other items.

The move to sell the iPad in other retail outlets should further solidify the growth in the tablet category. A report from DisplaySearch last week showed iPad sales rising while netbook shipments were falling sharply.

    So that study about how iPad users are rich, educated, outgoing, overachievers is going to be debunked now?

    Target wouldn’t have taken on this product if it didn’t think there was good sales potential.

    I couldn’t care less about all these damn surveys and profiling. Bunch of crap.

    The only things that matter are the FACTS reflected in sales figures and financial reports as well as growing numbers of distributors such as Target.

    This is far better news than all the babble about “competition”, real or imagined.
