Thats why Im hoping to get in on pre orders!! LOL
I'm still curious where they will be sold and available for pickup, or if they will be an Apple site and Apple Store exclusive. I'm thinking being a larger device than iPhones or Touches, that all Apple centers will sell them along with Best Buys and Wal Marts.
I have been waiting for an Apple Tablet product for a long time just like the rest of us. Last fall I even mentioned to my wife that I didn't care how much it cost. Then it was unveiled and was noticeably lacking a camera. This device screams video camera for networking - its not there - as a result I have been second guessing my plans to be first in line to buy one. No I don't think they will be sold out on the first day.
I think sales will be brisk, but I don't think they'll sell out. Heck, I was able to get an original iPhone from the local store 2 days after the launch, I don't think I'll have a problem getting an iPad... keeping my fingers crossed anyway.
You can bet people will be selling the iPad on eBay at a premium regardless if it sells out or not.
There are always speculators out there. My prediction is that their will be a shortage of iPads real or not. Makes for good publicity.
Apple Computer and Vespa Scooters. That's how I roll.
