A friend overseas wanted one so I called our local Apple store (Naperville IL) yesterday to see if they had any white/64/AT&Ts available. Was told they did but couldn't promise that they'd be there when I arrived as there were people in the store shopping for them. When we got there they still had them, one at least, so we took it and out of curiosity I asked if they had any black versions of it left. Was told they did. Couldn't talk my wife into buying a second for us though.
No conspiracy or mystery here. Simply demand exceeds supply. The iPad 2 is THE most sough after consumer product on the planet. I ordered one from Apple, 2 week delivery. During that time I constantly checked Best Buy stores and the Best Buy iPad tracker on line. Found the one I wanted at Best Buy and cancelled my Apple order. Really, the hunt was fun and exciting. Came so close several times.
They are popping back into stores in the UK. Albeit in dribs and drabs.

Just picked up a 16GB wifi today in Pittsburgh Pa.
I saw some at my local Target store this weekend. Apple stores here get a shipment everyday - one goes early and can get one or not if the ones available are what you're looking for.

Got my first offical notice today from Apple about our Ipad2s. Went to check on status and this is what it said:
Shipped on: May 22, 2011 via May go Postal
This is clear as mud. I may go postal if they don't arrive soon. JUST KIDDING. Thankfully if one continues to read there is a tracking number for Fed-EX and it is May 22nd in China!!!!!!
I am not mad or angry in any sense of the word, just kinda gettin' bummed because I can't get my hands on one of these things, that"s all. I have scoured the stores sites locally and my local Apple store takes just about an act of God to get through to. I may have to order through Apple and then cancel if I find one local.
