Target has today confirmed one of the worst kept secrets in retailing by announcing it will be carrying Apple's iPad in 1,743 of its stores nationwide from October 3rd 2010. Target says that it will be offering the full range of iPad models, including the 16GB Wi-Fi model starting at $499.99 and the 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+3G models. A selection of accessories, including cases, iBook and iTunes gift cards, chargers and more, will also be available in the electronics department at Target along with the iPad.
Good news for Target and good news for Apple. This will certainly get even more iPads moving off the shelves in the lead up to the holiday season.
