Today, it appears two big name stores will be selling the iPad besides the Apple store, Amazon and Best Buy.
9to5Mac reported the Amazon page announcing the iPad. They indicated that it couldn’t be found with a search but that it was indeed there and you could enter your email address to be able to be notified when they had stock to sell. However, as of this writing this evening (3/26/10), the page has gone offline. It was there this morning – I saw it — really 🙂
Macrumors found the Best Buy information and posted in this story “Best Buy Preps for April 3rd iPad Launch“.
“Consumer electronics retailer Best Buy has reportedly begun preparations for the launch of Apple’s Wi-Fi iPad models on April 3rd, providing its retail store employees with details of events leading up to the launch. Sources report that the iPad will initially be carried only at Best Buy locations offering devoted “store-within-a-store” Apple Shop sections. Approximately 675 of the company’s over 1000 U.S. locations offer such dedicated sales areas for Apple products, and other locations and bestbuy.com will not carry the iPad at launch.”
