    Default Rumored Release date of March 26
    From Wired

    Rumor: iPad Will Go on Sale March 26 | Gadget Lab | Wired.com


    Apple hasn’t stated an official release date for its iPad, but rumors suggest the highly anticipated tablet will go on sale on March 26.

    Both MacRumors’ Arnold Kim and the Examiner have heard from tipsters that Apple stores will begin selling the iPad on Friday, March 26 at 6 p.m. The Examiner added that “People who camp out for the iPad will receive a special gift.”

    That would be similar to the original iPhone launch, which began selling 6 p.m. on Friday, Jun. 29, 2007. (I don’t remember receiving any gifts when I camped out for the iPhone, but I did receive some coffee.)

    Apple has said the iPad without 3G will begin shipping late March. The iPad including 3G should be shipping about 30 days later, according to Apple.

    An analyst spread a rumor earlier this week that tight inventories might delay iPad shipments by a month, but an Apple spokeswoman told Wired.com that the iPad was on schedule to ship by late March.

    How does Apple work their pre-orders? Do you get it in the mail or a voucher to pick it up at a store?

    I'm guessing what happens is you get an e-mail confirming the order and apple will have the iPad shipped to your house on launch day. If you don't want it to be shipped then you can print the e-mail and take it to the store. Apple doesn't like to waste paper on receipts so I doubt they would send you one in the mail.
    When the police want to know where someone is, they ask apple.

    Wow, that's about a day before my birthday. I even heard from my parents that they are actually getting this on my said birthday. But not sure if I would want it, doesn't look that bad though.
