I have been trying to purchase an IPAD2 over the past couple of weeks. I have been to the local Apple store in the south suburbs of Chicago 3 times. Once, the 64GB White Ipad 2 was available. I was looking for a black ATT 3G version. Photography is a hobby and black in general is better as a background for showing off most photos. Another time they only had a Verizon model. Using the inventory tracker, I found a Walmart 30 miles away that showed the IPAD2 in stock. Called the store. The confirmed they had a 32GB 3G ATT model. Raced to the store. Called again when I was 15 miles away to reconfirm they had not sold it. They reassured me they had one in stock. I arrived at the store and the electronic associate brought out an IPAD1! I wanted to shoot myself.
I am out this craziness now. Too much of a chase and I no longer have the time nor the energy. Had hoped to procure one for vacation reading at the end of April. I have thought about the ATT deal on the 64GB Ipad1. Awfully tempting but I don't want to regret it. Anyone have a predication on when the supply crunch will end and you'll be able to walk into a store and purchase one?
