Thread: iPad 2 availability retail?

  1. #1
    Default iPad 2 availability retail?
    Hey guys, was wondering if the Apple stores truly did have new shipments of iPad 2s coming in today. I couldn't find any articles proving or disproving the rumor from a few days ago.

    If Monday is the magical day, I'll camp out in front of the local Apple store this coming Monday

    Unfortunately, I'm in tech-hungry NYC.

    Thanks for the input, but I am more interested in knowing if the Apple stores got new stock for sale today as rumored. I'm sure there was something resembling a line before they opened this morning, some happy, some not so happy!

    My local Best Buy had two white 64GB iPad 2s yesterday. I went back today and they only have one left. They wouldn't sell it to me though saying that Apple suddenly told their small regional stores to stop selling any they have in stock. They couldn't explain it any more than that unfortunately. Anyone ever hear of something like this? 4.3.1? Bug fixes? Hardware problems?

    I was at target and they had quite a few. And they had been on the shelf for awhile. (San Diego)

    Well there's One way to find out. Order it from the Site"Apple Site of course" and if there is some in stock which it will tell you on the site..then Yes they have some. You can't do that with Best Buy since all their orders our in store orders only.

    I was fortunate to walk in and get one at my local apple store and I recently left from their for an appointment with an apple genius and noticed that there were several people coming in and purchasing iPad 2's with no problem. Then again, I don't know what model they were getting or the model you are seeking.

    P.S this is in Baton Rouge, LA

    I know a lot of the apple store employees here in town and they told me they are receiving shipments every morning of about 10 units per model configuration on the 16/32 models and about 10 per each 64 wifi model and 5 per 64 AT&T/Verizon model. So that makes about 150 per day on average.... It may seem like a lot but the apple store where I live does A LOT of business and they still sell out on a daily basis with people still showing up every morning to try and get their hands on one when they open at 9am.... They're opening early strictly to sell iPads.....Like I said, this is what I was told.

    Anyone know where to get one like a store credit card besides target and best buy?

    The Apple Store online has shipping down to 1 to 2 weeks now instead of the 2 to 3 weeks it was about a week or so ago.

    Some Best Buy stores still have an employee model called "CA". You call this person, ask them about a product, and then ask them to put one aside for you at customer service. They usually need some confirmation, IE: Phone number + ETA on your part, but it's worth a shot. You need to not call a specific department, but rather ask for a "Best Buy Representative", or "Operator", whatever your local stores automated derivative.

    This person is mainly sitting at a cubicle, taking your orders/questions in a distant corner of the store, whilst wearing a Bluetooth headset, so they're able to physically get up, go get your iPad2, and hold it for you.

    Worth a shot Double C, Good Luck.
