    Availability - or sellout on first day

    The iPad 2 will be my first Apple product purchase. I understand they will only be sold in the Apple stores at first (vs. BestBuy or Walmart).

    My question is... When Apple releases a new product are they sold out on day one or is it reasonable to expect that stores will have ample supplies in different configurations. I'm looking for BLACK and in the 16 gb which is probably the lowest priced and best selling unit.

    I plan to go to the store on the first day, but won't get there until afternoon -
    likely to be sold out by then or not a problem?

    Someone who knows how these deals work please advise.
    I'm in the Atlanta area if it makes a differenece and I think there are at least 3 Apple Stores here.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure how they're approaching the selling part, but if you can order online I'd go for it that way...The LINES SUCK!!!! I waited in line for the iPhone 4 and it was a huge painful ordeal...My niece on the other hand ordered on line and got hers shipped out the day before...But if you like people watching, the line is the place to be...LOL

    They allowed people to pre-order the iPhone 4 but they won't for the iPad 2 so, if you want to get it on launch day you'll need to go to the store.

    Apple builds iPads built to order that means you place order it may ship from china. Takes about 4 to 6 days

    Regardless, I'm getting some popcorn and soda and sitting back to watch this show. When's the Ipad 3 coming out?

    I'm wondering the same thing. Hoping to get some replies from people who have done it in the past (ie. Iphone 4 AT&T release). The Iphone 4 was available by pre-order online, but they also had a release in the Apple stores. I assume those lines would be a bit longer than the Ipad 2 lines. I'm just trying to judge how early to get there on 3/11. They say they'll be available at 5pm. Our Apple store is in a mall, so you can't get there before the mall opens, but will people be waiting in line outside the mall when it opens? Do you think it will be that popular? I can't imagine, but a line at noon seems likely. But I have no idea, never been to an Apple in-store release.

    And contrary to rumors (even as late as yesterday morning) the Ipad 3 will obviously not be out this year. Saw multiple articles of some "Apple employee" that said the Ipad 3 is really the one to wait for. But, with 2011 being the "year of the Ipad 2" it's not going to be this year like those reports speculated. Some were saying Sept. of this year. Like was said above, seems likely to be at least a year from now.
