Apple knows that it is important to increase sales of the iPad, which is why the device is now at Best Buy, Target and tomorrow at Walmart. However, we now have word that Sam’s Club will also stock the tablet, as well as the iPhone 4 and the new iPod Touch.
Cnet News reports that this was announced during the retail outlet’s investor meeting. We know that Walmart is to sell the device in some stores on Friday and all other stores halfway through November, no release date was given by Sam’s Club.
Apple has now shifted more than 8 million iPad’s since its release, and understands that sales could be affected once rivals begin to offer alternative tablet devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Google Android will be the mobile OS of choice for a number of tablet vendors, but there are others coming, such as Windows Phone 7 and RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook. There are also continued rumors of HP having their own tablet, but we do not know if they will go the Microsoft route or use webOS?
Do you think that the Apple iPad will still be the best selling tablet over the holiday season?
