Walmart to sell the new iPad – UPDATE: Sales start at midinght


Update: According to BGR, Walmart will begin selling their stock of new iPads at midnight (aka 12:01AM Friday).

If you’re planning on picking up an iPad 3 tomorrow, going to Walmart might be a better choice than going to an Apple Store. Most Walmarts are open 24/7, so you’ll be able to wait in a line inside the store instead of a line outside in the elements all night. Last year with the iPad 2 launch, I went to my local Walmart, waited in line for 15 minutes, and walked out with an iPad 2. They had plenty of stock, and everyone in line got the one that they wanted. I’d check with your local Walmart to see if they actually have any in stock, but this might be a better choice if you’d like to avoid the insanely long lines that’ll be found at various Apple Store locations across the world. View the full-size image below. You’ll notice that the price tags are already in place.

Assuming your iPad will have them in stock, you might be able to walk in at an earlier time to buy one.
