    I have been trying days on getting the ipad2 from apple but no such luck. I know the wait time for online will take forever but I fear it will only be extended as sales are starting in the UK. Do you think the apple stores in the US will get more despite the lack of units for sale online?

    I don't see it getting any better at all. If they had them, they would be selling/shipping them while it is so hot.

    Don't give up now if you want one in the near future. Analysts from Piper Jaffray are saying that many needed parts specific to the iPad 2 are sourced from Japan. 2 primary suppliers, Toshiba and Mitsubishi Chemical, are currently shut down with the possibility of components being delayed until the end of June.

    With the huge demand for new iPads even before the international launch, there may be major shortages ahead. I would buy one anywhere I could find it at this point.

    This is all educated speculation of course.

    I was just at the Apple store exchanging my iPad 2 for another one and they said the stores are receiving shipment everyday. My "home key" stopped working. They said they sell out right after they open so I suggest you get there before the store opens. Good luck!

    No search at all, just order it

    from Apple.com. Of course there is a waiting period everywhere right now for those who did not jump on March 11. Just order it and take a deep breath. It will arrive as advertised.

    Patience, will pay trust me. Wait for the shops to restock and then buy is what I recommend.

    I gave up my search and ordered one online 2 days ago under the advertised 4 - 5 week prison...errr....shipping time. :) I found that I was spending WAY too much time calling Apple/Best Buy/Walmart and figured it would be easier to just be patient.

    If you keep searching, I wish you the best of luck and hope you find one soon!

    Going on a search tomorrow. Heard apple stores now have a small stock every day and will open an hour early to sell them. My local store said to get there hours early in line and if they have them in stock (are not allowed to say), then there will be a good chance I will get one. I am on a mission. I work til 1 am, will sleep by 2, and be out the door by 4 in search of an iPad 2. 3 more weeks until shipment and a week for delivery is just not happening.

    I ordered on launch morning n missed the primary shipments. Waiting, alleged 3/22 shipdate then 3/31 so now I'm not holding my breath. I just check the site n my bank acct to make sure I don't get charged twice or bs'd out of my order. I can't bear going to stores n bn rejected. I rather know that I'm one of the million waiting by the door.
