Target may carry Apple TV
Major U.S. retailer Target will likely join Best Buy in carrying the recently launched Apple TV wireless multimedia streaming device. Target has agreed to carry the Apple TV at all of its locations, according to AppleInsider, and units have surfaced at various Circuit City and CompUSA locations. Sources familiar with Target's plans say Apple TVs will begin surfacing by the end of April, according to the report, and Target will offer complete demonstration units connected to widescreen HDTVs at some locations. Apple TV received a warm welcome just after launch, but sales at Best Buy locations appear to have tapered off following the initial buzz. Apple is due to report on its second fiscal quarter on April 25th, and is expected to hint at sales tallies from the company's direct channels, according to the report.
