Apple will sell iPad at Best Buy

Consumers will be able to buy the iPad at a variety of locations besides Apple's retail store, Apple's chief operating officer said Tuesday.

The comments came during Tim Cook's speech at the Goldman Sachs annual tech conference in San Francisco. In addition to the obvious Apple retail stores, consumers will be able to purchase the iPad from Apple directly and from "partners like Best Buy," according to AppleInsider.

Cook didn't mention whether AT&T would be selling the device in its retail locations, even though it did sell the iPhone models. One reason for the AT&T omission could be that the first iPads will only have Wi-Fi. The 3G, Wi-Fi combo models will come 30 days after the initial release.
