Today, Best Buy announced that they would be expanding the availability of Apple’s iPad to all its U.S. retail store locations beginning on September 26th. The retail giant will carry both the Wi-Fi and 3G models in over 1,000 stores as well as online.
“Technology is becoming more and more personal, and our customers say they really value visiting a Best Buy store to touch and try the iPad for themselves,” said Wendy Fritz, senior vice president of computing at Best Buy. “We’re delighted that we’ll soon make that opportunity available to everyone who’d like to come see us, and experience this device in any Best Buy store nationwide.”
The iPad will carry the same price tag as it does in Apple’s retail stores. The news comes just days after BB announced it would also be carrying Amazon’s Kindle ereader in time for the holiday season.
