    Hey all! With a little bit of searching and a ton of luck, I picked up a 16 GB white /WiFi today my local Target at about 11:15 EST. If you're still searching for one....you may want to try the Target iPad 2 Availability Tool found here:

    iPad 2 Availability Tool: Which Stores, How Many Units

    I did a search for a 32 GB WiFi White and it said they were available at my local Target. I called them to confirm, and sure enough they had JUST received a shipment of 25 and put them on the floor 10 minutes before I called. It took my 10 minutes to get there and there were only 6 - 16 GB WiFi only iPad 2's left.

    I hope you have the same luck!

    Nice, but a bit useless because every day every single store says "out of stock" and...who knows when they update this information.

    Thanks, anyway.

    I had to keep checking....that's where the luck comes into play. All of the Target stores around me were out of stock at until 10:00 AM. Unlike Milo, which reports that nearly every Best Buy has every model in stock all the dang time....this seems to work.

    It worked great for me after I struck out at the Apple store. As the last ticket was getting handed out I was pulling up the Target stock on my phone and booking it to the Target down the street. I was the last person to get one that day on that shipment. :D

    Stupid, I tell you. I've used this over and over, different times of the day, pulling up different models at different metro areas all across my state (CA) and the ALL say "out of stock" EVERYWHERE.

    I would say that if you're in California, this is totally useless.

    I didn't see anything listed as "in stock" for anywhere in ORCO earlier today. When did you look it up? Maybe I'm using the wrong time frame to check. Maybe the wrong model?

    Okay I checked around 9:30, closer to 10:00. Maybe that's why.

    I checked today at around 9:30am for all the 32g versions and Orange showed available for the black Verizon 32g. I'm disabled, so VERY slow, and somehow I got it around 10am. My lucky day.

    I would say very lucky.

    I have one on order and it should be here by the 6th (I ordered in the afternoon of the 11th), according to Apple. That's 2 weeks away. I just thought perhaps I might get lucky somewhere but the chances of that have dwindled. The nearest ANYTHING that would carry the iPad is over an hour south of me.

    I'm almost afraid to check other model types other than the one I really want. I know if I check the white Verizon 16G and see it, I'll go and buy it. But that's not what I want? Why would I do that? Because this whole thing is making me crazy, that's why!

    So, it's best for me to only check the model that I've decided I want...and continue to see "Out of Stock"

    It made me feel better when I went to the home button and then set up the search for IPAD. It finds them all over :)

    You know what kills me? All these people who went out early and stood in the lines, searched high and low, etc. to get an iPad and then they bitch about it not being the one they really wanted. "Now I gotta take it back" or "Now I'm stuck with this", or "I have to sell it" and "Now I need to find the one I want."

    Really? When they KNOW the demand is going to outstrip the supply in a matter of hours, as usually happens with iOS devices? Hello!

    It's okay to be anxious, run out and get your iPad, etc. That's fun. But...WHY SETTLE FOR LESS THAN WHAT YOU REALLY WANT???

    I thought about all that searching, going early, getting in lines, etc. but whenever the chance existed that the vendor I was going to wouldn't have the Black 64GB AT&T 3G model in stock, I opted not to go. That's the one I want and I'll be dammned if I waste my time and effort by settling for a white 16GB WiFi only version in the end just because that's what they had in stock by the time I got to the head of the line...and then be upset that I didn't get what I wanted. That's just dumb.

    I ordered online and am patiently waiting for mine to arrive on the 6th.

    That is the tricky thing we all toy with. If I order online I have to wait to get it. If I try and wait in lines I can get it much sooner. Its human nature to want things before others.

    What makes the whole thing more complicated is that 18 different iPad models!!!!
