Wal-Mart to sell iPad? Wal-Mart is set to begin selling the Apple iPad in 2010 in the U.S., says one of the company's executives.
"We anticipate being able to have the iPad later this year," says Gary Severson, senior vice president of entertainment for Wal-Mart’s U.S. stores.

The exec would not provide any timetable, however, or whether they would offer a discount off the MSRP.

In the past month, Apple has sold 1 million iPads, its strongest new product launch.

So far, the device is only available through Apple directly or at Best Buy brick-and-mortar stores.

The Wi-Fi/16GB version of the iPad is available for $499, and the most expensive, the 3G/Wi-Fi/64GB version, sells for $829 USD.

This just in: Apple has partnered with depends for their next launch, the iDiaper. While no details have yet to be released, it has been confirmed that adobe flash will not be supported, as Apple has decided that both Adobe Flash and HTML5 are not modern enough, and instead they have stated that they will wait for HTML7, and that they will discontinue updates before HTML6 comes out. While so may say that this prevents any video from ever being used, Steve Jobs insists that the iDiaper will be a great product as soon as someone installs Android on it.
