    So I know that you can buy the new iPad at any Apple store, or at AT&T or Verizon if you want the 3G version. But will other stores carry them starting this Friday, or at least by this weekend? Places like Best Buy or Walmart? Or do anyone know if AT&T and Verizon will carry the non-3G iPads?

    My only concern is that the closest Apple store is a good 40 min drive for me, and getting out there late on Friday or this weekend may not work for me. I know that on Friday around 12:00am local time, I can place an order online but most likely it wouldn't get shipped out until Monday and delivered until early next week. I'm eager to pick one up, but worse case I can wait a few days.

    Just wondering anyone has heard if other retail stores would be carrying the iPads on launch day/weekend.

    Thanks for the link. That answers a lot of my questions.... assuming that the report is mostly accurate (as we know things always change at the last minute, and reports can be considered like rumors early on).

    Thanks for the link also. I think I may order online. I was going to go straight to the Apple store after work - which is 30 minutes away - but not now. I didn't want to wait but, I think ordering oline may be better for me.

    I'm leaning that way as well. I probably couldn't get to the store until 6ish and I'd hate to hassle driving across the city during Friday rush hour to strike out.

    Really wish they'd have done the launch on Saturday instead of Friday.

    I was at a Walmart today, and asked if they'd have the new iPad on Friday. The guy said that they would NOT have it, as it was over their price limit. Kinda surprised me. I'll probably be at our local Walmart tomorrow, and I'll check. It'd be so much easier than trying to get to Best Buy.
