Rumor: Apple iPad Will be Sold in AT&T Retail Stores

Ever since the announcement of Apple’s new iPad device, there have been several unanswered questions lingering. One such question is exactly how will the iPad be distributed? It’s obvious they will be sold in Apple online and brick-and-mortar stores, but what about on AT&T’s side? Since they will be sold without contract, it’s been largely assumed that the only role AT&T will play in the iPad is being its data provider.

Boy Genius is reporting differently. In a breaking news flash just a few hours ago, BGR revealed that one of its AT&T sources is confirming that 3G-capable iPads will indeed be sold in AT&T’s corporate retail locations. In fact, a rather large portion of its netbook section will be utilized as an iPad display. We expect these displays to be similar to the ones the iPhone are currently on.

Keep in mind, everyone, this is completely unconfirmed; it’s all being mentioned through anonymous sources. However, Boy Genius typically will only unveil these kinds of rumors when there’s very little chance of being wrong. Take it with a grain of salt, but it is interesting news nonetheless.

Another thing to understand about this is that if it’s true, it does not mean the iPad will be sold with contract. If iPads are sold in AT&T stores they will still be sold at the same exact price as in Apple stores, without contract or subsidy.
