    Due to work I'm not going to be able to get there early. I'll probably end up getting there right at 5. I really hope there won't be a huge line. I'd love to spend Saturday with the iPad. I sold my iPad last month and have been going through withdrawal.

    Anyone else plan on showing up? What time?

    Thinking about it but probably just going to grab it online. I wouldn't be able to get there till about 6:30-7:00 so who knows then with the lines/stock supply.

    Anyone else?

    Will be there ~ 4:30PM after work. If there's a long line, I will probably get mine from Best buy, or across the road at Sam's.

    I unfortunately missed the iPad launch so it’s good to hear that there wasn’t that big of an issue with availability. Plus, not like there isn’t a Best Buy right across and a Target down the street.

    I'll probably go when I get out of work at 5:30. I'm thinking they must expect to have good stock since they arent doing preorders and are launching in 26 additional countries two weeks later.

    That's what I'm sort of scared of too since you guys don't officially get it until the 25th. I'm going for the same model as you and I hoping other people are looking to go on the low end and get the 16GB or 32GB.

    Hey all, I registered just for this thread, I figured we could all help each other out on launch day.

    Can anyone who is going to the Galleria Mall or the other stores mentioned in this thread on launch day please update this thread with how busy it is? I know a lot of people can't make it there until 5 or later, so if we all post in here and say how many people are in line, and if it looks like they are gonna run out soon, we can make it easier for those who can't get there early to line up. Post here too if they are sold out.

    I'll be there with my two boys - all this after a long morning/afternoon at Sick Kids' in Toronto, and then the beginning of our trip south for March Break!

    Will make for a long day, but fun time (I think?)

    Ohhh geez.. didn't even think about the timing with the beginning of the March Break.

    When you declare it you have to pay HST (13%).

    Does anyone know whether the Best Buy next to the Apple Store will be carrying the iPad2? In other words, will all Best Buy stores be carrying the new iPad?

    I plan to buy it from Best Buy if the Apple Store lines are horrendous. I plan to reach there ~ 4:30PM.

    If people in line could update us who can't show until later that would be great.

    Looks to be at least that now. Keep going inside store to ask about numbers but apparently they have yet to count (or maybe even have them yet) all of them. Best buy set up ropes for a line up but only like one or two people in line.

    This isnt looking too good for me. Hoping there is a 64gb for me when I get there.

    The line has gone down the side of the store wall and looped back around toward the Apple main entrance - probably about 200 people here. They are giving out Tim Horton's Coffee (yeah, Canada!) and told us that the people currently in line shouldn't be worried about not getting an iPad. Hope that helps! I'll try to update again at some point.

    Wow... it seems unlikely that I'll be able to get one today.

    Best Buy line was at 7, though there is a sign up there that says they only have wifi models.

    Thanks for that mcfayden, I think I'll head there at 4:30PM... I am only interested in the base 16GB model.
