    A chequered history.

    iPad (1st gen) - no preorders in USA, but there were internationally (on a later release date)
    iPad 2 - no pre-orders, in stores only, on sale from 5pm local time, supply constrained, very unusual
    iPad (3rd gen) - preorders
    iPad (4th gen) and iPad mini (1st gen) - preorders
    iPad Air - no pre-orders, in stores only, plentiful supply
    iPad mini with Retina display - no pre-orders, in stores only, supply constrained
    iPad Air 2 - pre-orders, soft launch (no set day), preorder deliveries arrived one day before in-store availability
    iPad mini 3 - same as iPad Air 2
    iPad mini 4 - available immediately after announcement in-store and online

    iPad 4 128GB version was introduced I believe 5 months after the original 16,32,64GB iPads, no preorders.
