According to the geniuses at Boy Genius Report, Apple is teaming up with the only iPad US carrier, AT&T, to distribute the 3G models of iPad at their retail stores. This seems quite logical because all versions of the iPhone are sold at AT&T stores nation wide, but to date nothing along those lines for the iPad has been confirmed. AT&T selling the 3G model in stores would open up the door for Apple to sell more units of their forthcoming tablet device, and would also open up the door for more potential sales of the 3G model. BGR also states that large display models would be in the stores, similarly to the large iPhone displays currently housed in AT&T stores. These displays may be featured in the store’s netbook section. Apple is said to be launching the non-3g iPad in late march and is planning to launch the 3G models by the end of April.
