BestBuy has confirm that they are holding iPad 2 sales for a upcoming promotion rather then because of a disagreement with Apple.
According to a statement given by BGR:
“Best Buy continues to receive iPad 2 inventory from Apple on a regular basis. As we’ve said previously, we are fulfilling customer reservations first. Our stores have been asked to temporarily hold non-reserved iPad 2 inventory for an upcoming promotion. This is a customary practice for us when there are supply constraints. Best Buy enjoys a great partnership with Apple, and we’re delighted by customer response to iPad 2.”
Only yesterday, Apple restrict BestBuy from selling iPad 2 because they found out the company was holding off on selling the iPad 2s it had in stock and convey the customers there weren’t any.
We don’t know long this dispute will continue.
