I was able to pre-order a black 32gig wifi/4g at work today around about 4pm CST. The website was extremely slow, but took me about 20 mins to place my order. Decided to go with the 32gig this time because I have a 64gig iPad 2 and its waaay too much space to use.

Now trying to sell my 64gig iPad 2 :\

Great idea to phone, thanks for posting this info!

You may have to try several times. I called after numerous timeouts online and I received a recording saying we cannot answer your call please call later due to high volumes.

Apple to pre-order. The site is US so if you are in another country, scroll to bottom and "Change Country"
I'm in Canada
Folks, please tell me what accessories you are ordering. I don't understand the TV one and all the adapters. The cloud and IOS is lost to me. Will I have to buy those too?

Like a previous person said, I've got it all lined up, but haven't hit buy yet
What does the TV box do? It's another $109. I'm getting the red cover, only comes in red. Ordering the top of the line 64GB+3G
Extension cord so I can sit across the room and stay plugged in. The accessories are so expensive, I'm up to $1000.00
This is an exciting day.

I haven't seen what you are referring to. But the cloud comes with the iPad and IOS is the operating system, so no you don't buy those too, they are included, although extra storage is available in iCloud. There are adapters available to mirror your iPad on your TV. Hope that helps.

Glad to report that I prordered the wifi/4g version. I'm excited to have faster speeds than 3g offered. My iPad 2 is on Craigslist as I type.

I ordered over the phone. Was on hold for about 30 minutes. Then a kind woman came online and told me I was her first order, because the computer and phone lines were down. It took me about 20 minutes to order my Ipad 3, wi-fi 4g 64. Now my 87 year old mom will get my first generation iPad.

Took a little bit to get through but got my order in around 4:45 this afternoon. Got my confirmation and it says I should receive it sometime between Wendsday the 14th to Friday the 16th. When I ordered I asked if it would be shipped the 16th and he told me no. Said I will GET it by the 16th. Hope he is right. My husband is getting my ipad2.
