  • iPad 2 Online Orders to Begin Overnight Through Apple


    In what could become another middle-of-the-night Internet feeding frenzy, online orders for the new iPad 2 will begin overnight, says Apple. If you don't want to battle the crowds (assuming, of course, that there will be crowds) at your preferred iPad 2-carrying retailer, you can order the refreshed tablet from home at least twelve hours before the 5:00 pm launch of iPad 2 sales at phsyical stores tomorrow.

    Apple says online ordering will commence overnight at 1:00 am Pacific and 4:00 am Eastern. But if the delay of shipping is too much to bear (or because you want in-store setup), you'll still have 236 Apple retail stores in the US to choose from if you must have an iPad 2 in your hands by this weekend. Also joining the retail roll out tomorrow will be AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.

    The international arrival of the iPad 2 remains on track for later this month. According to Apple, on March 25th, the 2nd generation iPad will arrive in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.

      Okay, uh other than the ipad 2 being sold at different places. For example best buy, walmart, etc...will those stores sell smart covers And other ipad 2 accessories on release day as well? Or can those products only be purchased at an apple store?

      I dont want to line up in the store again.
      So don't. If it is REALLY going to kill you to have to wait an extra few days/weeks, you seriously need help.

      All best buy stores that carried the first gen iPad will have iPad 2s in stock. Im trying to figure out the reasoning behind the whole 5pm thing as well... but hey, I dont make the rules.

      Our store will be handing out tickets pertaining to which model and color you want, and basically we will sell until we are sold out haha.

      and there are no preorders, lol... another thing that absolutely SUCKS!!!
      lucky for me, walmart has the iPad right next door as Best Buy employees have to wait 90 days to buy one. by that time, i might as well wait for the next refreshment of iPads! hahahahaha

      Now is the time to buy 1st gen iPad. Saw a 64 gb wifi+3G for $364 on amazon. So worth it, like an iPad is really for typing and surf the web and
      Watching movies, also reading books and comics( have a 8gb of spider man comics and the walking dead collection in which I'm up to issue 49).

      Any idea if the GSM version will be Locked to AT&T or unlocked?

      I'm still thinking about which I should to for. Definitely don't need the 64gb. So it's either the 16 or the 32.

      Can't wait for the site to "crash".
      Happens every year and they never want to fix it, I am sure there is demand for these but artifically boosting higher demand only make some people want it more.

      Really? That was just plain rude. If ppl are excited to get the iPad 2 then leave them be. No one's interfering with you not being excited about it, show the same respect

      I have doubt, but that's what I expect too. I'm still confused by ggab's response which implied both of those specs were known.
