Wal-Mart To Start Selling iPads On Friday



It’s been a long time since Wal-Mart first tipped that they’d be selling iPads in their brick and mortars starting later this year, but with the holiday shopping season coming up in the rear view mirror and Target now selling iPads themselves, Wal-Mart couldn’t very well hold back any longer… so starting this week, you should be able to ask any Wal-Mart greeter to direct you to the iPads and have them not look at you like you’ve got two heads.

According to Mac Rumors, Wal-Mart has sent out an e-mail to its store managers detailing the coming roll-out. Apparently, Wal-Mart will sell all six variations of the iPad, but with initial stocks of only five units per model per location… so if you’re shopping at a busier Wal-Mart, you might have to fight some old lady for one.

Update: It’s now official.
