I think (or I should say I hope) that Apple is better prepared for the iPad 2 release. That isn't to say the original went poorly. I just hope they'll be better prepared for the in store damand considering their projections for it's first quarter sales. Last time, I ordered it online and got it the same day they were in stores. It appears that won't be the case for online orders this go around. As such, I think I am going to try the Wal-mart, Target, Best-Buy route and see if I can get lucky so I have it for the weekend. Being on the east coast, worse case scenario is they sell out and I go home and order online mid-afternoon PST. I wish their was some good projections on what to expect in the stores. Good luck to all.
