In a move to further entrench the iPad as the standard of tablets, Apple and retail giant Target announced they will begin selling the device.
All six versions of the iPad will be available at all Target stores beginning Oct. 3.
The news comes on the heels of Best Buy getting into the iPad game. The electronic retailer will start selling the iPad on September 26.
Target also sells Amazon’s Kindle – a rival to the iPad.
The iPad’s infiltration into major retailers will work to Apple’s favor as consumers will be able to get hands on with the product. This will become increasingly important when new tablets start hitting the market (some as early as next week).
