GameStop Begins Stocking Tablets At Over 1600 Stores Nationwide

GameStop has already sold Android tablets in-store for some time now, but the initiative was more of a soft-launch with only 200 participating locations. That just changed as GameStop announces they have expanded the Tablet offers to “more than 1,600″ locations around the country. All tablets purchased from GameStop will come with pre-installed titles of the retailer’s choosing, though you’ll have a choice of Samsung, Acer, ASUS and Toshiba.

We’re still waiting to see when GameStop will launch a trade-in program for Tablets, but until then you can hit the link below to find a GameStop location near you.
