While at first glance, it may seem a little strange that Toys R Us is apparently planning on selling the iPad 2, it really makes a lot of sense. Apple is pursuing different market angles, and one of them is the e-reader one, and kids love the big full-color interactive titles in iBooks. To be honest, I’d expect a whole section of Toys R Us to be dedicated to color e-readers soon.
The evidence is plain enough: training documents explaining the specs and selling points of the iPad 2. I’m more surprised they aren’t being trained to play up the kid-oriented titles in the book store, and the many games aimed at young’uns.
No dates are mentioned, but I imagine we’ll have an official announcement from Toys R Us in our inboxes soon.
