But along with healthy iPad sales, Jewell says he's anticipating a strong market for accessories."This is certainly…there's a whole new product line that has been created for this device so I do assume to push numerous other [products] to accompany the iPad," he says.Jewell says he and his technicians are also anticipating training from Apple for iPad repair services.The Mac Authority did not sell iPhones when they were released, and Jewell says this will likely be the biggest product launch he's seen at his store.
