Gamestop Begins Selling Tablets In-Store and Online Starting Today

Looks like Gamestop is ready to jump on the tablet craze (if there is one) with the addition of a few tablets making their way to the video game retailer starting today.  Gamestop will be selling the Acer Iconia Tab A100, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and the Samsung Galaxy Tab in 200 of their stores as part of a test program. Each of the tabs will have access to Kongregate’s Arcade app store including 7 free games including Dead Space, Madden and Sonic CD. If the test program goes well, Gamestop will ship out more tabs to stores in 2012.

Prices for these tablets are near identical as you would find at any other retailers with the Iconia Tab 8GB being offered for $330, Transformer for $400 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 coming in at $500. Gamestop loves their bundles and the tabs will be offering their own with accessories like a Bluetooth gamepad for some serious tablet gaming.

What do you guys think? Could these tablets be a hit for the holiday season?
