iPad is Coming to a Target Near You

Friday, September 24th, 2010

Attention all of my commercial real estate friends: Target just announced it will start selling Apple’s iPad in all of its 1,743 stores in 49 states beginning Oct. 3.

ipadShoppers can choose from a range of iPad models, including the 16GB Wi-Fi model starting at $499.99, the 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi and the Wi-Fi+3G models.

“Target is very excited to offer the revolutionary iPad to our guests nationwide,” said Mark Schindele, senior vice president, merchandising, Target. “We are committed to providing our guests with the best products and we think iPad will be at the top of our guests’ holiday shopping lists.”

As nearly everyone on the planet already knows, the iPad allows users to connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. Users can browse the web, read and send e-mail, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music or play games, and read e-books, all using iPad’s revolutionary Multi-Touch interface. iPad with Wi-Fi+3G models are just 0.5 inches thick and weigh just 1.6 pounds – thinner and lighter than any laptop or netbook – and deliver up to 10 hours of battery life for surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching videos or listening to music, and up to nine hours of surfing the web using a 3G data network.

More good news: Target will also sell a selection of accessories including cases, iBook and iTunes gift cards, chargers and more along with iPad.
