It was already announced earlier this week that AT&T will start selling iPads in their retail outlets on October 28th. Yesterday they said they will also start marketing iPads to businesses of all sizes.
The exclusive U.S. iPhone provider said it will offer attractive post-paid mobile broadband price plans for the iPad which will be available through AT&T business account representatives beginning Thursday, October 28.
Those offers will be available for customers whose AT&T wireless bills are paid for by their employer, while the iPads themselves will be available for corporate purchase with a corporate service subscription from AT&T.

Both AT&T and Verizon will start selling iPads in their retail stores beginning on October 28th.
This is huge news in terms of the whole AT&T vs. Verizon battle, as well as in terms of expansion potential for iOS devices in the US market – as this is the first time since the launch of the iPhone in 2007 that Verizon is going to be selling a mobile device from Apple. My thought is that this just about confirms that we’ll see an iPhone on Verizon within six months.
For the iPad, this has been one hell of a good month for building its retail sales network in the US. Best Buy is now offering the device in all of its stores, Target is now selling it, Walmart starts selling iPads tomorrow, and now it will be sold in both AT&T and Verizon retail outlets as well starting late October.
