    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.

    Verizon will start selling at 8 am. They are also taking online orders starting at 3:01 ET. Posted on their website.

    Business customers can order online beginning at 7:01 am.

    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.


    Any other B&M stores carrying ipads on release day?

    It's not "definitive" if you don't have a list of every seller in the US (or world?) or if some are wrong. Otherwise it's just another list. ;)

    This thread is getting more and more definitive as the moments pass.
