    Wal-Mart May Sell Apple IPad This Year in Electronics Expansion

    May 13, 2010, 12:02 AM EDT From Businessweek



    By Chris Burritt
    May 13 (Bloomberg) -- Wal-Mart Stores Inc. may start selling Apple Inc.’s iPad in 2010 in some U.S. stores as it competes with electronics chains for consumers who want to connect their e-mail, movies, games and music.
    “We anticipate being able to have the iPad later this year,” Gary Severson, senior vice president of entertainment for Wal-Mart’s U.S. stores, said in a telephone interview.

    They've sold iPods for years, nothing new.

    Makes sense, my local Wal-Mart has the iPhone and iPod so why not.

    It's funny because two years ago when I got my iPhone, I got it at Wal-Mart because in our town the AT&T store did not sell it.....

    Thanks for the info! Maybe Wal-mart can get some to actually sell, unlike Best Buy. I'm tired of waiting for Best Buy so I guess I'll order through Apple.

    If Apple's goal is to get an iPad in every hand, you can't do much better than Wal-Mart.

    Another good piece is that maybe they'll stock a bunch of accessories
    Most probably tapped on my iPad!

    Wal-Mart is going knock heads with Best Buy, and the iPad is a good fit for them. The iPad is not a substitute for a laptop, or desktop, but consider the family that already has one computer, but needs more. Given the experience of getting a netbook, or spending more money to get a decent laptop, the iPad starts making sense. If they get the word out about the iPad better through Wal-Mart, it really starts to make sense.

    I agree it isnt a desktop replacement...but I feel no need or loss at not having a laptop at all.

    I still see iPad in a different class. While a laptop can be a desktop replacement, the iPad is a desktop companion.
