Details have been sent to these stores.” The publication claims to have confirmed this will store representatives.
The iPad 2 would certainly go a long way in improving Radio Shack’s offerings in the Tablets & E-Readers category. Currently, theCoby MID1025-4G Kyros 10.1″ Touchscreen Tablet is leading the pack (at least on price) on Radioshack’s website.
Other retailers that are currently selling the device include Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Verizon, AT&T, and of course Apple itself.
