BestBuy - regular store hours
Walmart - 8am pending stock is at the stores
Radioshack - regular store hours + phone calls to pre-orders

Those are word of mouth from employees.

It's important to remember that resellers can only provide what Apple ships them. No matter how many they order, they are dependent on Apple.

While this is very obvious, many people fail to remember, then get upset with the reseller if they cannot deliver.

Called my local Radio shack and they only have enough for those that preordered.

Both Local walmarts have no idea and say they have not heard anything about the iPad. I will probably stop by at 8am to see if I can snag another.

This is very true.
