    I've seen them at Target and Best Buy near me, and my neighborhood AT&T shop said they had them in stock, too, when I stopped by to pick up an SD card for my Android phablet.

    I went to the Apple store in downtown Toronto five days after the new ipad was released to check out the retina display. I asked how many weeks I would have to wait to buy one, to my dismay, they had plenty of them in stock and I ended up walking out with one. No prep time to figure out how to explain this latest purchase to my wife :(
    The iPhone 4 on the other hand, was much tougher for me to get a hold of.

    Apple has learned a lot from recent years.....they made sure to have plenty of iPads for everyone.

    I think apple did a really good job with initial demand but as the initial stock begins to sell out I think it will be a little harder to get one. All of the best buys around me are out of stock on wifi only versions and said it would be a while before they get more. Not sure on my local apple store since they are always busy so I don't bother asking them since I already have one.

    Physical stock in the volume needed to keep every store in every model is a logistics nightmare - even for a company as well positioned as Apple.

    They are doing a great job meeting demand, while continuing to make record sales numbers.

    I have no local apple store but the three within 1-2 hours from me all were in stock Thursday, I gladly made a 2 hour round trip to take advantage of the zero intrest offer and pick up a 64gb ipad3 in cincinnati rather than wait for April 23 - 30 delivery date thru the
    Apple online store.

    I had to order mine and I live in MI and it took nine days for me to get the white 64 gb ipad, but it was well worth the wait and now its resting nicely in its outerbox defender case. Now Im the proud owner of two IPAD and the iphone 4s.

    In & Out of the Lancaster, Pa. Apple Store with a shiny new iPad 32GB black wifi in about 10 minutes a couple of days ago.

    Seemed like the best price at the time too.

    Now all I need to do is find a few apps and port 25 years of "regular" computer use habits.
