Walmart has confirmed that it start selling the iPad on Friday at hundreds of stores across the United States, according to the WSJ.
Wal-Mart landed the tablet computer a little later than two of its largest retail rivals: Best Buy Co., which has been selling the iPad since its launch in April, and Target Corp., which began carrying it this month. The Bentonville, Ark., retail giant said that what it lacked in timeliness it will make up for in sales heft. It vowed to slowly ramp up the number of U.S. stores carrying the iPad to more than 2,300 by the height of the holiday season in mid-November.
Walmart will not be offering any special discounts on the iPad. Pricing will begin at the suggested retail price of $499.
