    I randomly called my local Best Buy yesterday and asked if they had any 3G iPads in stock. I didn't expect them to since I had called multiples times earlier in the week with no luck. When the guy came back on the line after checking the stock, he said they had none but had a couple expired reserves and one of them was a 16gb wifi model. He set it aside for me and I went and got it. So check your local Best Buys for "expired reserves." I don't know of that's official Best Buy lingo but that's what the guy in customer service called it.

    that is how I got mine.

    Walked in, asked the apple guy if he had any. he asked what model and I said any.
    He pulled out a 32 3g that was reserved and cashed me out.

    Best Buy has been doing these for a couple of weeks now.

    I got my iPad on March 24th this way. If people do not pick up their reserved iPads before their 48-hour window is up, they all go to walk-in customers. It totally makes sense!
