    When will the shelves overflowing and stocked at places like Best Buy, Wal-mart, Target, etc.

    I'm thinking at least a couple months more of this sold out mayhem?

    They are not sold out

    Just make your order at Apple.com whenever you like.

    They are not in stock - it takes them 2 weeks to ship!

    Estimated ship time is 1-2 weeks and they put me down as ship date 2 weeks from when I ordered (ordered on Monday).

    If they were not sold out it wouldn't take them 2 weeks to put the iPad in a box and ship. :mad: :confused: :p :ipad-case:

    I would guess by June 1st you will be able to find ipad2 in local stores. The shelves won't be overflowing but you find them by then with little effort.

    But that's just a guess;)

    They are not sold out. I live out in the country in Northern Virginia, about 70 miles southwest of Washington, DC and using the iPhone APP "FindOne" there are half a dozen available in stores within a 40 mile radius of me. If you don't have an iPhone, try this link on your PC FineOne | ASF Mobiles

    I found one at the Walmart just 5 miles from my home.

    Scrappininmd, I found my the same way.

    I ordered an iPad2 in the middle of April and an Est. Delivery date on the 10th of May then again on the 6th.

    In the mean time I was still searching locally and found on in a Target (of all places). Just The model I ordered from Apple online.

    Searching the suburbs can pay off. I found mine 17 days before I was supposed to have it.

    I'm wondering if ordering online seems to trigger a store found model instead, just saying. A lot of people have said this so far.

    Just for the. Record On line store will carry limited stock as Apple does not warehouse the quantities like HP and ACER do. Apple stores are similar that only carry a weeks or maybe 2 weeks supply and the rest order from Apple direct or Authrized Apple distributers. WHen you order on line on a mainstream product and the store has it it is shipped within 3 -4 days however if stock is low it goes to CTO or BTO built to order then it around 10 to 21 days pending type of product. iPads are built in china whereas other products may come from any one of several factories that Apple has. Singapore supplies towers, monitors and iMacs plus lap tops for SE Asia but again depending on supply some items may come out of China. Apple is ramping up production and for what I can understand is producing 4 million plus a month iPads to cover demand. Hopefully it will catch up around June or July.

    Same happened to me at Bestbuy. The truck came in 1 hour before I got there. There were only 2 when I got to the store. Easily sold out in less than 1 hour of shipment. I live in Central Pa.and Ipad2's might as well be bars of free gold.

    Sounds like quite a few have had similar experience than me.

    I decided last week that I wanted one. Since local BestBuy wasn't able to tell when I could get one if I ordered one, I decided to get the app for my iPod Touch and after a few minutes found a Target store about 20 miles from my house that had one and off I went.

    I didn't really need or want the 32GB model, but what the hell...

    But I don't think there will be too many on the shelves, especially in larger metro areas, anytime soon. The Apple hype takes care of that.

    I ordered online in march and after a week into the 4-5 week wait I couldn't take it so I found 2 at a target. I've had it for about a month now and can't imagine not having it

    I found my black 64 gig 3G (the exact model I wanted) on walmarts site.

    I called to see if they really had it and they told me they had only one in stock, it had come in 1/2 hour earlier. I told them I would give them a discover card number to pay for it in full and they refused saying they where first come/first serve!

    After a heated discussion involving the manager etc I finally got them to agree to hold it for 1/2 hour to give me time to drive there and purchase the thing.

    Nobody around here has any model in stock period.
