Only a few days until Apple’s latest and greatest, the iPad is released to the masses and I’m sure I’m not the only one getting antsy about it. With the release being so close, Apple has begun shipping iPads to be all ready for your touch on Saturday, April 3rd.
UPS and Apple have a history of not allowing their products get in the hands of consumers early so don’t expect to be having some Friday fun with it just yet; that will have to wait until next week. Like I already said, April 3rd will come and that’s when the gavel strikes on Apple’s most anticipated product since the iPhone.
Didn’t preorder and still want an iPad on launch? Good luck is all that’s going to help you now. Best Buy and Apple stores will have some available but only on a first come, first serve basis. Best Buy did reveal that each store will receive at least 15 iPads (5 of each model) so there is hope yet for those last minute shoppers. Along with that initial launch quantity, Best Buy is also expecting another shipment of iPads on April 11th.
Well, there you have it. You can still grab your iPad on launch with some willpower and luck (assuming you haven’t preordered) so there is hope yet. Remember, the iPad models and prices are the 16GB for $499, 32GB for $599 and 64GB for $699. WiFi + 3G models will be available later in April for $120 more per model.
