Apple opens up availability of its popular iPad

Apple's iPad has been a huge success for the company. The 9.7" device -- which is available in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities in both Wi-Fi-only and 3G versions -- has reinvigorated consumers' interest in tablet devices and competitors are readying their entries into the field.

IPads have been selling at a furious pace, and after only initially being available in Apple Retail Stores, Apple's online store, and Best Buy, Apple is now spreading the wealth to Amazon.com and Target.

Target will also start a new promotion on October 17 which will give Target credit card holder a 5 percent discount on the purchase of any iPad. For those that purchase a 64GB iPad Wi-Fi, that would amount to a discount of $35.

Those who purchase from Amazon.com can get a "discount" of their own -- that is if they live in a state where Amazon doesn't have a business presence -- thanks to there being no sales tax on the purchase price of an iPad. However, if some states have their way, this is a loophole that will be soon closed.

Apple's iPad will be receiving an update this November which will bring it in line with its iPhone and iPod touch siblings. IOS 4.2 will bring third-party multitasking, folder support, and wireless printing to the iPad.

RIM has announced its oddly named "PlayBook" which is being marketed as a business tablet. The device features a 7" display, dual-core Cortex A9 processor, 1GB of RAM and runs the BlackBerry Tablet OS. Likewise, Samsung is close to releasing its 7" Galaxy Tablet which runs Google's Android 2.2 operating system.
