iPad 2 Launch Day Availability: 5pm At Stores & 12:01 a.m. Online On March 11th

Hey guys, we have gotten information that has said that iPad 2 customers will be able to grab the device starting at 12:01a.m. (Pacific) on Apple’s online store. That’s great! Now, judging by this conversation, Apple doesn’t want to give out specifics about whether they have enough to meet demand, but just watching all of the 3rd parties saying that they will be carrying the iPad on launch day, I don’t think finding an iPad on launch day a problem, unlike previous leaks that said that supply would be an issue.

Also, they say that they don’t know when Walmart, Sam’s Club, Verizon, or Best Buy will have the iPad available on Friday, but the Apple Store will have them at 5 p.m. you can bet that I’ll be in line! 🙂

    Has anyone noticed that bestbuy.com only has iPad 2 in black listed and not the white? Anyone think apple will encounter the same problem as the MIA white iPhone 4?

      I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it listed, also, no. Apple made it very clear that they have the white iPad under control. Steve Jobs made the remark “we’re going to make it in 2 colors, black and white, and we’re making the white version available on day one”.

      I don’t see any production issues on the iPad due to the color, but we may see some issues due to high demand. So if you want an iPad 2, I suggest standing in line.
