    I don't know. But I am sure you can pay for it online. Also, I called my local Walmart and they have no idea whats going on..

    Don't get too excited ... not all Walmart's are created equal and depending on where you live, the amount of iPads that they get in could be few to none ... it's all about demographics ... but .... they do already know how many they have and can check stock.

    From Slashgear.com:

    However, it looks like Walmart will only be carrying the $499 16GB WiFi-only version of the iPad. It will be available in both white and black, but it’s not clear whether Walmart will be offering the 4G LTE version as well. Other places that will start selling the new iPad tomorrow morning, include Best Buy, RadioShack, Sams Club, and Target. Make sure to check out our full review of the new iPad.

    I had my secretary call our Walmart earlier today to inquire. She was told they will be selling the "$898 model" starting at midnight and they have 5 (YES, FIVE) available. She said they were promised to have more, but only got 5. Those poor people standing in line.

    I wonder if word will spread fast enough to have some midnight madness going on? If I didn't already have one on order, I'd be driving around searching every Walmart in the area.

    My stores will probably have a decent selection. For a long ime we had the top grossing store, and then they built a seond store. Both are doing great. And yet, Target keeps telling us that our demographics are not viable. WM is laughing at their demographics all the way to the bank.

    So I went to my Walmart to see if they had it on display. Not only was it not on display but the electronics dept looked empty. Too bad I pre-ordered mine.. I would be playing with it by now... Sometimes living in BUMP US.. has its advantages heh.
