    I decided to go for the ipad 4 after selling my ipad 2 a while ago. I didn't pre-order it but i really would like to get it friday or saturday.

    I know all Apple stores are different but what are the chances i can go in the store and buy one?

    Does anyone have experience with buying an ipad on the release day without waiting in line?

    Thanks!

    You will be able to walk in to a store when it is convenient for you and get one. The demand is not high enough to expect them to sell out.

    I agree, I think that Apple will have tis well covered. Many 3 owners are not upgrading so this will not be a major introduction of a new device. There might be a line but no where near previous times. Get there early and you should be good.

    The iPad 4th gen seems to have been lost in the Mini hype. I would be surprised if you couldn't walk in and get the colour and capacity of your choice anytime on Friday.

    I can't wait. 48 hours. Should be good... until the novelty goes off. ;P

    So it looks like the general consensus is that I will be able to walk in and grab one on launch day.

    I guess I will see come Friday!

    Heck, I was able to walk in and buy an iPhone 5 on launch day.

    I think you will be able to walk into a story Friday morning/lunch time and buy mostly whatever you want. Mini, iPad 4, etc. I think there will be inventory, but I'm sure a few flavors will be sold out.

    Does the iPhone 5 or the iPad 4 have the better camera? =P

    Just to remind that they will not have Cellular models, only WiFi units.

    Enjoy!

    Like everyone has said, the demand for the iPad 4 isn't nearly as high as the iPad 3 and you could want into almost any store at any time on launch day back in March and pick one up.

    The iPhone 5 has a better back camera. The front facing cameras are identical.
