Breaking: iPad Available April 3rd
Ending speculation that the long awaited tablet would be available this month, Apple today announced that the iPad will be formally rolled out on April 3rd. It won't be until late April, however, before US consumers can obtain the 3G models. According to Apple's announcement this morning, global availability similarly won't take place until later in April as well.
Global availability includes the iPad's release (in both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G models) in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. International pricing won't be announced until April. The iPad will make the rounds and ship to additional countries later in 2010.
As speculated previously on ModMyi, pre-orders will, in fact, be possible. Beginning March 12th, you can reserve your tablet either at the online store or at an Apple retail outlet.
“iPad is something completely new,” Steve Jobs said in the release. “We’re excited for customers to get their hands on this magical and revolutionary product and connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before.”
Beginning April 3, the iBooks app will also arrive, in addition to Apple's iBook bookstore.

I don't care. Anyone who buys this will be kicking themselves when the second or third gen comes out with twice as much flash memory, a camera, faster processor, more RAM and so on.

So it took Apple an extra 20 days to get the iPad ready.. Disappointing but definitely within reason

sounds like someone needs to get you a special birthday gift this year.
but to be honest: if someone doesn't gift me this product, I'd never own it. I don't see enough features to make it a purchase. it's just not there yet. Maybe next year's iteration.

you represent a different type of consumer. i'm entering into my college years. i will be in constant debt for the next 10 years of my life, perhaps more.
not everyone is in your exact position

Would anyone find it to be a good investment to buy this on launch day then throw it on eBay? Idk if it will be sold out like iPhones or just stupid

im a college student broke as they come! When will mmi be doing a give away so i can pretend like i have a chance to own it!Yeah, you'll be the coolest person in the room when you pull one out and show it around, but that gets old fast when three other people have them and one person somehow has one that glows in the dark.

I don't need an iPad. Most everyone here just wants it because they are the shizzle and everyone wishes they were them. The ipad is a toy. A severly limited toy. But then again, irresponsible people can just put it on their credit card and pay it off whenever.

I paid $200 for my 3GS and sold it for $500.
You should know, apple products retain their value very well, so in a year they can be sold and you can use that money to buy a newer version..
