Apple iPad to hit racks at BestBuy, besides Apple’s retail, online education and other direct sales outlets

February 24, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Apple is gearing up to start retail sales of the iPad much akin to what it had done for the iPhone. From what we hear from the Apple brass, it is more likely that the iPad might toe the iPhone sales-line by making itself available through Apple’s own direct sales channels and other assisted sales partners such as BestBuy.

A day ago, Apple’s chief operating officer Tim Cook had made it public that this is how the company plans to kick off sales. According to him, the iPad will launch in retail, online education and other direct sales from Apple. This is besides hitting the racks at the company’s assisted sales from partners like Best Buy.  The sales plan could also include bringing in AT&T stores also as sales outlets for the iPad. However, it is not yet known who will ultimately be the iPad’s wireless partner in the US.

Whatever the decision could be, it is for sure that the iPad has generated loads of enthusiasm already. Customers are most likely to pick their device from anywhere it debuts, be it BestBuy or any other sales partner outlet. Expected to hold sway for an incredible $499 tag, Apple’s new product is just being awaited by scores of enthusiasts. We too are.
