  • 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.

      So what's the reasoning behind this? I was hoping to get it early in the morning and have one to play with all day,

      Lol, nice. We should hook Canada up, they've given us great beer and hockey!

      I think I'll wait a couple days before I order this time.

      Will BestBuy accept pre-order? Let's say If I walk in Best Buy and preoder it put down deposit and then pick up the iPad 2 at 5:00PM? Will BestBuy allow that?

      It doesn't sound like it. I called one and they are going to have people form a line for tickets I guess. I still don't get or like this 5PM time.

      Will all Best Buy stores have them or only the ones with the Apple kiosks inside?

      What I want to know is why the USA get the iPad 2 first, all the iPads are produced in China so it takes longer for them to ship to the USA then it does to ship to say... Europe or Asia.
