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.

    Hope Better than Best Buy

    Went to Best Buy to ask about upcoming Apple Boutique. I talked to the Geek and Computer manager. All I got was a rant about how Apple was awful. I left feeling very down on Best Buy. I did find out that it was a targeted store for one of the 200 new Boutiques.

    Good Luck

    Best Buy :x

    Our Best Buy has had an Apple TV hooked up to a Windows PC for several weeks. The problem is they don't actually have it on display anywhere in the store. None of the employees knew anything about it. At least at Target it should be prominently displayed.

    Eh..

    Most people shopping at best buy don't go there to spend top dollar on an unfamiliar new brand, but i can say that if they hire the right folks this will all work very nicely.
