Best Buy just announced it is expanding iPad availability to all U.S. stores September 26. That of course goes for the Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi +3G models.
"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."
Best Buy has 1,093 locations across the U.S. The company is already selling the device online
and through Apple Shop locations within stores.
Earlier this week, Apple announced that its Wi-Fi iPad models will be available in China at Apple Retail Stores this Friday (September 17). The company said in a statement:
Apple Retail Stores will offer a free Personal Setup service to every customer who buys an iPad at the store, helping them customize their new iPad by setting up their email, loading their favorite apps from the App Store, and more. Apple Retail Stores in China are also hosting special iPad workshops to help customers learn more about this magical new product.
It also looks like iPads might become available at Target in October, if a tip Engadget received is any indication.
