Target will start selling Apple's iPad on October 3, the company announced at a news conference in Minneapolis today.

Target will carry all six versions of the tablet, including the 16-, 32-, and 64GB versions of the iPad with Wi-Fi and the iPad with Wi-Fi and 3G. Prices will start at $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi-only model, which is the same price that Apple sells the device for.

A Target spokeswoman told CNET in a phone interview today that the iPad will be included in a special store promotion beginning October 17 that gives customers a 5 percent discount if they use their Target credit card for purchases.

Target now joins Best Buy in carrying Apple's tablet. The iPad was available at about half of Best Buy's retail stores when the device first went on sale. Starting Sunday, the iPad will be available at all Best Buy stores.
