Apple's iPad, which has already been made available at Target, Best Buy, and Amazon, will be made available at Wal-Mart starting on Friday. Availability will begin online with orders being picked up in stores, with in-store stock expected at 2,300 stores by the end of the year.
Despite Wal-Mart's well known discounted prices on most items, the iPad's pricing is not expected to undercut Apple's prices through the Apple Store and their website. Wal-Mart will sell the most basic WiFi version for $499, with prices increasing to $829 for the top of the line 64GB 3G/WiFi model.
