Walmart may not be the first place you think of stopping by when you need a new gaming PC, but iBUYPOWER is hoping to change that. The manufacturer has made a name for itself for high-powered, generally overclocked desktops, and now those computers are also available through Walmart's online store.
As we suspected when the original iPad was pulled from Best Buy's inventory on Tuesday, the iPad 2 (and its nifty cover) will be available in the store on Friday, March 11. One would suspect then, that Best Buy will begin selling the iPad 2 at 5pm on March 11, just like at Apple Stores. The graphic below is what is shown on Best Buy's website.
With the Verizon iPhone 4 launch feeling like just yesterday—preorders started a week ago—the device on the new carrier is already heading over to Walmart. The retail giant has been carrying the device for AT&T but just made an announcement today that the Verizon version will now be available in select stores starting tomorrow--February 10th.
Last week T-Mobile announced they would carry the new Samsung Galaxy S 4G and now comes evidence that Walmart will be selling the smartphone for $148.88. To get the device you will need to sign a two-year agreement, or upgrade. If you choose Flexpay with a two-year agreement, the phone will cost you $248.88 or you can pay $650 with no contract.
Walmart has prematurely listed the HTC EVO Shift 4G, ahead of what we're guessing will be an announcement for the QWERTY slider at CES 2011 later this week. Confirmed as headed to Sprint complete with 4G WiMAX support, according to the listing the EVO Shift 4G has a 3.7-inch touchscreen, runs Android 2.2 Froyo and comes with an 8GB microSD card.
Good morning everybody in technology land, welcome back to SlashGear's Morning Wrap-up. Today there are several rumors including a possible Motorola Motopad being a 7inch Android 3.0 debut, a possible 20+ custom Adam applications for the Notion Ink, Froyo for Dell Streak by the end of November, and maybe even a couple of opening bats for Honeycomb? Then we've got a review of a US version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab (T-Mobile version), a weeklong adventure with HTC HD7's hardware, and a few words on why Don Reisinger can't wait to get rid of his DVR. PLUS: Dual Core dreams in Galaxy 2. Now all we've got to do is plug our fingernails into our kneecaps as we wait and see if Android 2.3 Gingerbread is released today at this years Web 2.0 Summit. Hooray!
VUDU and Walmart have partnered to provide digital versions of content bought in DVD or Blu-ray format, though to begin with only Disney's Toy Story 3 will be on offer. Anybody buying a physical copy of the film in Walmart stores will be able to enter a bundled download code at VUDU's site, and access a digital copy that streams to your VUDU hardware or software player.
Always wanted a NOOK but refuse to step into a Barnes & Noble store or shop online? You're in luck, then, as the bookseller has just announced its wireless ereaders will be showing up in Walmart stores (as well as through their online store) from October 24 2010.
Walmart has confirmed that it will be offering Apple's iPad tablet from Friday this week, the latest big-name retailer to carry the 9.7-inch slate after Best Buy and Target. The roll-out will cover several hundred Walmart stores initially, before being broadened to around 2,300 stores by mid-November. However, don't go down there expecting a bargain.
All that we're missing at this point, is an official statement from Microsoft about how much their motion-based gaming peripheral is going to cost. Yeah, that's right. We've got pricing from just about everyone else by this point, but Microsoft has still yet to "announce" anything. And that's even after their very own Microsoft Store listed the Kinect at $149.99. And considering everywhere seems to be boasting the same price, we'd be pretty surprised if that wasn't the final decision. But, if you are thinking about getting a bundle, Walmart's already got you covered.
