For those that got 4G....did you go Verizon or AT&T?

I ordered both and will return the one I don't want unopened. I just didn't have time to research the best one.

Verizon gives you the option for use as a hotspot.

Or maybe we'll get lucky and get it on the 15th.

What's everyone doing for cases? I ordered a smart cover but may return it in favor of a full case. Don't know how I feel about having the back exposed and tossing it in a bag with other stuff.

the back of the ipad scratches waaaaaayyyyy easier than the screen. i got a smart cover as a gift and really like it, so I will be looking for one of those "smart cover compatible" back shells.

Yeah that was my thought.

http://www.tuaw.com/2011/06/12/smart-cover-compatible-ipad-2-case-roundup/

There's a bunch. I assume you can't use an iPad 2 one on the new iPad due to the increased thickness.

Some of these are neato:

For those concerned about the back scratching: Whenever you put it down somewhere, just place it smart cover side down. Problem solved.

More concerned about when I throw it in a bag or something. Guess a sleeve would work.

Mine still says processing and I snagged it pretty quickly after the site was back up.

I don't go in Apple Stores on principle, but if I go in one saturday and the new ipads are sold out (which they certainly will be) will there still be display units to check out?

I really enjoy inCase's cover/sleeve products. I have a neoprene sleeve for my 11" MB Air and it's perfectly minimal. Their website says they are working on case options for the iPad3, so hopefully that is one of the options available. The iPad2 offerings are also pretty slick. Granted they're basically the same thing but I'll be interested to see what they have available specifically for this iteration.

so how long should a non-preorder customer expect to wait for these to become in stock at local stores?

Depends on the store. And I would end up checking at some of the lesser known places. When the iPad 2 came out and it was sold out everywhere, I just happened to be in my local Target on the day after launch and there were tons of iPad 2s just sitting there while all the articles on the internet were talking about how all the Apple stores were out of stock and there was a 3-4 week wait on getting new ones. This year, Target, Wal-mart, Radio Shack and Best Buy should all be getting some on launch day. I wouldn't be surprised if you call around to those places and are able to pick one up on launch day with no hassle.

Microsoft needs to port Age of Empires 2 to the iPad. I'd shit my pants. Or WC3.

i vaguely remember reading that it would be available in apple stores on the 16th. that kind of implied that it wouldn't be available in non-apple stores then, but idk.

try here in rocky mount. most of the folks around here can't afford fancy things like an ipad/iphone/etc so we've never had a supply problem. IF people decide to line for something on launch day, the line is like 10 people long lol

The entire reason Apple has retail stores is to demo their hardware. Of course there will be demo units of their new flagship product.

To be fair, I also missed the "holy shit that was an epically stupid question, I can't believe you asked it twice" key too, so you win some and lose some.

You also should add that it they will probably have some on display, however, there is usually a really long wait to try them out on the first day.

And mine says it's sitting in Chengdu, China currently, delivered by end of day on 3/16

I've never been in an apple store in my entire life, this is the first apple product I'm considering purchasing since the old aluminum shelled ipod mini (first generation). I don't know enough about how they operate to know if that was a stupid question or not.

Well that's not good. My order still says processing. Apple put a hold on my debit card a few days ago but just put the money back in this morning. Wonder what that means.

I ordered a 32GB wi-fi only because I will predominately use this around the house, so no need for the 4G. I also didn't order a smart cover yet because I wanted to go in to the store near my house and get a better feel for the textures.

Has anyone tried to get their parents one with a keyboard to serve as a primary computer? I'm thinking the highly sandboxed nature would keep my parents from getting virii all the time

Their website says $399. Is it cheaper in store?


Any my iPad3 says it's in Anchorage, AK as of this morning... only a few more days!

^ Probably Open-Box.

For $50 more you can get one with a 1-yr Apple Refurb warranty

Yes, it's a YMMV in store only. Not open box. Walmarts are closing them out (apparently).

Unfortunately their prices and promotions vary from store to store and state to state. And Walmart won't pricematch to themselves LOL.

There's a monster thread on slickdeals about this.

Also ebay had the 32gb wifi on sale this morning for $399.

Prices are about to tumble on refurb iPad 2's, and I'm offering a fair price before that happens.

^Really don't think the display and boost in performance are worth the $100?

^ $200. He's talking $300 for the 16 and $400 for the 32.
