    I'm at Walmart and the guy just checked the inventory in the back. He said there's only 5 iPads and they're all 16 GB and that all Walmarts got the same shipment. Don't know if all of what he said is 100% true, but I thought I'd pass it on.

    I'm surprised he even knows what's available in his store.

    He wouldn't have a clue what other stores received.

    It's not true. People at other walmart are reporting seeing 16, 32, and 64gb available. Apparently not a lot of white versions however.

    Well, as I said, I was just passing on what he said. Maybe he's wrong. I guess we'll find out in about 20 minutes.

    No.

    Zero chance that employee is right, unless it's an uber rural Walmart...even then.

    Find it hard to believe that any Walmart would only get 5 of anything...ya know....let alone an order from Apple.

    *Apple: "Hi Walmart store, how does 5 iPads sound for launch day?"

    *Walmart: "More than enough, thank you so much!"

    *Apple: "Have a nice day"


    They got a pallet or 2...guaranteed. Probably all the sizes of black WiFi's.

    The forum is about to flood with peeps coming from east coast Wallys...for sure :)

    Strange. It's gotta vary big time for whatever reason.

    Some peeps reporting that their Wally has a bunch of all black WiFi models.

    Just varies I guess.

    I called my Walmart earlier today and they said they only had 16GB wifi only and 64GB wifi/4G's. One extreme to the other. Since I'm looking for a 32GB wifi only, I passed up on going to Walnut. Too big of an investment to not get the model I want.

    WalMart has, arguably, the best inventory management systems in the USA, although I'm sure Apple Stores will have the best supply given the house advantage.

    If you are faced with a local Walmart that only carries the 16gb model on launch day, its a pretty clear indicator that your local Walmart puts you in the "clueless schmuck" category and has stocked accordingly.

    So true. I second this. They can see live inventory at any other store at any given time. You wouldn't expect this at a Walmart considering half of the employees can't count past 10.

    I'm pretty sure you're alluding to it turning to midnight in your time zone so that it would be Fri, Mar 16 now. The iPad still isn't released by Apple until 8:00 AM, your local time. So, you'll find out in about 8 hours.

    It may be he can't count higher than 5.

    Maybe you should test him. Ask him his name and time his response.

    Just bought the 32 gb wi-fi only at Walmart. They had every size and color in wi-fi and 4G LTE.
