    Hello, I'm hoping to get an Ipad 3G on Friday, but looking at Best Buy's website, they're not showing any availability for any of the Ipad's (wifi's only) for MI, OH and KY. Have they truly sold out of them or is their site not working properly. The only reason I'm asking is to kind of gauge if I need to be in line for half a day on Friday.

    Thanks,

    April 30th will not resemble April 3rd. You will be able to stroll into a Best Buy store anytime and walk out with a 3G iPad in 10 minutes.

    Not sure about anytime. There is a little confusion on whether or not Best Buy will be selling them from open, or if they're supposed to wait until 5PM like the Apple Store is doing.

    I don't know Sonny...

    For the first launch all you had were the Wi-fi customers. This time you have the first time 3g buyers and the wi-fi folks who want to exchange their unit for a 3g. It could make for a more crowded scene then what we saw at launch. Hopefully you are right and there will be plenty of units for everyone.

    If the Apple Stores won't be offering 3G's until 5pm - Best Buys won't have them until 5PM as well. Heck - Best Buy may even decide to start selling on Sat morning - but - there's clearly been no announcement on that.

    How reliable is Best Buy's website when it comes to stock? Just out of curiosity, I've been typing in random zip-codes to see the availability of the Wifi models around the U.S., and haven't found a single store that shows up in bold (which indicates they're in stock). I find that a little hard to believe, and am inclined to think that they just don't update that often.

    As i have previously stated the mania and pandemonium are over. The WiFi only was the products initial introduction to the consumer. The 3G is just an upgrade. 90% of the gotta have it maniacs got satisfied on April 3rd. I don't see Friday as resembling anything like the original launch day.

    I completely agree with this statement.

    I am going to Best and bring my iPad just in case I have a chance to trade my wifi for a 3G but as of now i'm only 65% sure. Also, I don't even know if I Best Buy will let me since my 14 days was way expired but my 30 days is not. Who knows.
