We all knew the iPad Pre-Order would open up tomorrow, but thanks to TUAW we now know exactly when! According to their report, pre-orders for both models (3G & WiFi) will open up at 8:30 AM Eastern Time tomorrow morning.

"We asked Apple PR to help you plan your day tomorrow, and they responded: Customers can pre-order online at apple.com at 5:30am Pacific time on Friday, March 12."
Macrumors reports that in addition to pre-orders, U.S. customers will also be able to reserve iPads for pickup at their local Apple retail stores once they become available, guaranteeing product availability and speeding the purchasing process. While U.S. customers can pre-order any of Apple's six iPad models (three Wi-Fi and three Wi-Fi + 3G) beginning tomorrow, only the Wi-Fi models will be available on the launch date of Saturday, April 3rd. Customers purchasing Wi-Fi + 3G iPad models will need to wait until late April to receive their orders.

International orders for both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G iPad lines in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK will begin shipping in late April as well, although Apple has yet to announce a date that it will begin accepting pre-orders in those countries.

Thanks for the tip Finnedog!

Has anyone received an email from Apple???

No I haven't and was wondering why no such notification e-mail went out to all those who registered with Apple for the very "heads up" it implied would be sent to those who registered.

I think after they made their pie chart to show how many showed interest, they dropped the ball.
