retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Wall Street Journal reports that Walmart will begin selling the Apple iPad this Friday in hundreds of its stores, following the lead of Best Buy and Target, which already are selling the popular tablet computer.

The story says that Walmart will charge Apple’s suggested retail price for the iPad, and will not offer discounts. The retailer also said that it will ramp up the number of stores carrying the iPad to 2,300 by the height of the end-of-year holiday season.
