New iPad has its Mall of America moment

Today is the day Apple Stores across the USA, UK, Australia and a half dozen other countries open their doors to crowds of ravenous new iPad customers, the Mall of America's hero store no exception to the rule. Here Apple has prepared plenty well for the line of 50 intrepid Apple fans in line with the first several gentlemen and ladies having entered the mall as early as 1AM this morning.

Stock likely tight for Apple partners’ new iPad sales

This morning it's been announced that Apple will not only be selling the new iPad from their own retail locations, they'll be working with a series of 3rd party stores as well - this likely spreading the stock thin for everyone involved. This iPad release will have Apple joined by Best Buy, RadioShack, Sam's Club, Target, and Walmart, not to mention the two big mobile carriers giving this iPad its first dose of 4G LTE: AT&T and Verizon. Like last year's release of the iPad 2, customers should expect lines to be long and stock to be short - people are already lined up waiting for the Friday 8AM release, believe it or not!

According to a source speaking with Apple Insider, Apple is planning on operating Apple-branded mini stores inside 25 larger Target stores throughout the nation later this year. Visitors of the 1,000+ Best Buy stores across the USA may already have noticed similar miniature Apple stores inside the warehouses there - this would be something very similar inside what your humble narrator so lovingly calls the Big Red Living Room.

Apple received more online traffic than eBay or Walmart last month
