New to this forum an to iPads! I got mine on Saturday after I reserved it on Wednesday. I got a 16gig white wifi only thru frys electronics in just three days which I think is fantastic and better than waiting on shipments and having to wake up early to go to apple stores...IMO

I got my ipad yesterday. Still trying to figure things out.
Unexpected Gift for my Birthday
My husband gave me an iPad 2 for my Birthday just last night, so I am VERY NEW to what it can do other than what I know from owning an iTouch.
My Birthday is in April, and Mother's Day in May, but the poor soul couldn't wait to give it to me, so we exchanged gifts early (I had his gift already but his Birthday & Father's Day is in June)
I was stunned. We don't often buy gifts at all. We pass on ourselves in order to give to the kids (combined we have 4 teens).
I am also disabled, which means this was a very extravagant gift.
There was this moment of hesitation where I was almost afraid to open it, and then he told me what he went through just to find it (used some kind of app to locate one in real time for the past month, then drove two states away just to get it).
So now I feel it is my duty to use it for all it can be. I will be here reading up on all the things I can do with it.
Sorry for the babble; I think I am still in shock
I purchased my ipad 2 this morning at the Apple store. I saw in these forums that there was a huge shipment coming to all Apple stores on Tuesday. This was my first attempt to buy an ipad 2.
I arrived at the end of the line at around 8:30 am. There were about fifty people ahead of me, some of whom I was told, had been in line since 5 am.
Shortly before 9 am, an Apple employee walked the length of the line which was now out of sight for me (around a corner) and said she thought we would all get ipads. She assured everyone she would notify us as they sold out of various models.
I was able to go in the store about 10:55 am and I bought white, 16gb, ATT 3G plus orange poly cover which was exactly WHAT I WANTED!!
As soon as I was ready to pay for my ipad, cover and keyboard, the network in the store went down. This happened to me when I bought my laptop from Apple - same store. The nice gentlemen who helped me thought it was probably me.
When I left the store around 11 am, I was told they had a few ATT, 3G, 64gb's left. There was no line outside.
Happy new ipad 2 owner

What wonderful story! Thanks for sharing. But you never said what your gift to your husband was.

I would like to know what time people are queing and how are they getting? their choice or whatever they want...
I want a 64GB ATT BLACK....
O BTW, I am anti Steve Jobs and anti Apple and always have been HTC fan. this time also, i dont like that Ipad2 has no USB and no flash but still trying to buy one becuase there are no other readily available.
Notion Ink ADAM is the nearest to match but have not heard people talking that...xoom is too heavy, HTC is bringing only 7"/ BB playbook is book with no apps and last but not the least, Panasonic has no launch date yet....
What a sweet gesture. You are blessed

Took a few contacts with clever people in a few iPad forums but have it printing to my old HP Deskjet Which is hooked to my laptop via USB cable over my in-home WiFi network.
And with some reading of forums figured out how to get iTunes to point to my laptop folders where my photos videos and music files were located.
Also got DropBox and was easily able to open a lot of PDFs and import them I to iBooks.
Thanks to all the forum posters for the great hints.

Thanks; I am very blessed. Everyday is a new day, and one more than I had yesterday.

He is all happy now, he can watch our tv on his computer or his phone. No more missing the games and Nascar while in Europe!
