Looks like that leak was correct. Walmart has confirmed that Apple’s iPad will be arriving at its stores on Friday, October 15. All models will be available at the same prices that Apple charges and these will be part of a separate showcase of Apple hardware in-store.
The iPad will also be available online via Walmart, but only for in-store pick up, so you’ll be hitting the store no matter which you choose. The device will initially arrive at hundreds of stores, but an expansion will see some 2,300 stores offer it by mid-November. We take this move by Apple to mean that it is feeling some pressure from the competition.
