Target will sell iPad 2 on March 11
The Apple iPad 2 will be sold in Target stores starting March 11, according to the retailer's Twitter account and an ad on Target.com.
"The #iPad2 is coming to @Target stores! Get yours on launch day - 3/11/11" wrote @Target. An ad on Target's web site also said the tablets would be available in-store starting Friday.
A Target spokeswoman did not have any more details at press time.
Last Thursday Best Buy also announced that it will start selling the iPad 2 on March 11; there are also rumors that the reseller is giving free iPad 2s to all its sales associates.
Additional reports claim Walmart and subsidiary Sam's Club will carry Apple's highly anticipated new tablet, although spokespersons have not commented.
The Apple iPad 2 officially goes on sale this Friday, March 11 in Apple stores. No news has come out about pre-sales, however. Last year Apple began taking pre-sales nearly three weeks before the tablet was available in stores.
The iPad 2, which Apple CEO Steve Jobs launched at an event last Wednesday in San Francisco, is slimmer and faster than the original iPad and includes front- and rear-facing cameras. It also comes in white and black versions.
