Moderate college town of 45,000. When I got my iPad, I asked FedEx if they had gotten a lot of iPads today. They indicated they got over 200. They do not handle all of the deliveries from FedEx, only certain ones. So there is a chance that the other FedEx location may make deliveries too. It is also a likelyhood that UPS was given an equal share of the load. With two large WM Supercenters, Best Buy, large AT&T and Verizon stores, Radio Shack, etc, I do not think it unlikely that roughly 1000 iPads will find homes today.
Considering human nature, and other factors, I find this a very positive indicator of sales. Roughly having about 2% of the population buying a new item is huge. Of course, being a college town with over 20,000 students skews the numbers, but I do thik there is a chance that Apple will set a new sales record today.
