    I was just there and was going to order one and they said 2-3 weeks for shipping, but not sold out. They don't say the word sold out, at all.

    Shipping in two to three weeks DOES mean they are sold out for right now...it's going to take 2 to 3 weeks to make more to ship....so, technically, yes, they are sold out.

    Sold out

    iPad 2 sells out online, three-week wait for new stock

    The iPad 2 went on sale at 4:00 AM Eastern Time on Apple's website, and within a matter of hours it appears the initial inventory has been sold out.*
    To be sure, the online store is now informing customers that their iPad 2 orders will not ship for 2 - 3 weeks.
    The delays rose incrementally as the morning progressed, initially increasing to a wait time of a few days and then jumping to a matter of weeks.

    If you're lucky. I just called my local WalMart, and was told they had TWO in stock, to sell beginning at 5:00. Both 64 gig wifi only.

    Someone else posted that their Best Buy only had 10 to sell .... definitely going to be a shortage out there. Now I'm just praying I get mine in the 2-3 weeks that they say it will arrive!

    My order for a 64gb wifi is scheduled to ship on April 1 and deliver on April 6. So Apple online orders are now 4 weeks to delivery. :(

    Just out of curiosity, why wouldn't you just walk into a store and buy one?

    Who's to say the store will get them in any sooner if there's truly a shortage? But it's worth trying. The apple store usually does wait lists as well so it wouldn't hurt to check and see if you can get one faster that way.

    Of course, if they're in an area with no Apple store then it's a hassle to keep checking back at Best Buy/Target/Walmart if they don't do wait lists.

    Hearing these long dates makes me glad I set an alarm and ordered at 4am and got the 18th-25th delivery estimate! I don't mind a week or two wait. I much rather do that than waste time waiting in a long line to spend my money. They really should have done pre-orders instead of annoying customers to generate lines for free publicity.

    Ya I think I will stick with my ipad1, this is nuts to rush to grab one because you just have to have one. They are sold out because they didnt plan very well. Now everyone is acting like its the end of the world, incase most havent noticed there are more important things happening right now then a shortage on ipads!
