    I called both of my local Best Buys and they aren't putting the display out until tomorrow morning. I'm like put it out now so people will know if they even want to wait in line or not. But no they said they have to wait!:thumbsdown:

    Question.
    I travel to different countries
    In Australia we will not have 4 G ,but in other countries it is accessable.
    Question: can I or how can I access 4 g
    Will the new iPad be able to switch between ??
    Would definitely update if it could be possible.
    Hope you can help.

    No. I don't know. For example, my store got 5 each size and color. However the big box best buy got more

    A) If he worked for Apple he wouldn't have only received 5 of any color!
    B) He also mentions that the big box Best Buy got more so surely he works for Best Buy!

    Ding ding. we have a winner! haha.

    I get to be at work at 7 AM tomorrow morning...and then get to be there until 10 PM tomorrow night...YAY MANAGEMENT! lol

    The iPad launch is not what I'm worried about...its AFTER we have sold out of our iPads and all of the constant questions we have about them..when we'll have them in, etc etc. >.<

    Fun times for sure but I believe it won't be as bad as the iPad 2 since the change from the 1 to the 2 was a lot greater than what we are seeing going from the 2 to the New! And I bet you'll even get restock a lot sooner this year as compared to last.

    I will say this:

    After playing around with the new iPad, I felt that Apple has really hit its stride. The screen is amazing, it can't be described. You just have to see it. Especially next to an iPad 2. The difference is night and day, imo.

    Browsing and doing other generic things is notably faster and smoother, with the new screen and processor lending a hand in this. Text looks amazing, and compared to my fiance's Kindle Fire, it blows it out the water 10 times over.

    Playing games is notably faster, with loading times increased a LOT. For example, Infinity Blade 2 looks and feels much smoother and better on the iPad 3 as compared to the iPad 2. Weight difference wasnt much of note...as a 10th of a pound shouldn't be, but apparently some people thought it was too "heavy" >.<

    Overall, I am VERY impressed with this model, and cannot wait for a Jailbreak :)

    Cheers all,
