Wal-mart To Sell Apple's iPad From Friday

Retail giant Wal-Mart has agreed to sell Apple's iPad tablet device through its stores across the US from Friday.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the retailer plans to start offering all six versions of the device in its 2,300 Wal-Mart shops and through its online store before this year's holiday season begins.

The iPad has come to Wal-Mart later than it did to its competitors - BestBuy has been selling the device since its launch in April, while Target started offering the device earlier this month. Wal-Mart plans to sell the Apple device on the suggested retail price provided by Apple, with the 16 GB Wi-Fi only model going for $499, and not offer price-cuts.

The device will be offered from the retailers website, but those who pre-order the device are going to have to pick it up from their nearest Wal-Mart store, as the company has said that there will be no home deliveries due to restrictions enforced by Apple.
