Big-box retailer Target will reportedly begin selling Apple's iPad tablet computer in October.

The magic, revolutionary date: October 3, according to the company.

The retailer will sell four models, starting at $499. It didn't indicate which four models, but given the retailer's focus on value, expect it to be the more affordable versions.

To date, the iPad has been available directly from Apple and from electronics retailer Best Buy.
