confirmed that the company will begin selling the Apple iPad on Oct. 3 in its retail stores. This announcement confirms earlier rumors and is a move that mirrors Best Buy's recent announcement that all of its electronics stores would carry the iPad; just in time for Black Friday and the holiday shopping season.

Both Target and Best Buy will carry several iPad models, including the 16GB iPad Wi-Fi that starts at $499 as well as the 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi 3G models, which retail for $599 to $829. It isn't clear if Target will carry the 16GB Wi-Fi+3G model, which retails for $629, but Best Buy stores will be stocking it.
