    A MacRumors reader has just sent us the above photo claimed to be of an internal notice from RadioShack announcing that the retailer will begin carrying the iPad 2 at 500 of its locations around the United States as of tomorrow.We are thrilled that iPad 2 will be available at 500 RadioShack locations across the country starting March 29! Details have been sent to these stores.Apple has struggled to meet early demand for the iPad 2, both in the United States and in the over two dozen other countries that saw the device launch on Friday. Shipping estimates for new online orders remain at 3-4 weeks in all of Apple's online stores, and stock coming into retail stores has been very limited, although improving somewhat in recent days. With RadioShack adding another 500 distribution points for the device, further strains may be placed on Apple's supplies, although presumably the company has selected tomorrow for the new rollout based on projections of continued improvement in availability.

    Update: Representatives at multiple RadioShack locations have confirmed that they are scheduled to begin offering the iPad 2 tomorrow, although launch stocks are currently unknown.

    ...and they showed one of the 'good' retailers, Costco, the door.

    Which Apple Store did you try, there is more than one in ATL.

    All the stores (Walmart,Target, Best Buy) in Minot ND have Good stock of iPad 2's 3+ of each model in most cases and it has been that way for a week or 2 now.

    Uh, they've sold the iPhone 4. Who care WHERE you get it, it's still an iPad.

    What does it matter? The more sales the better, right?

    There's pretty much none in Oregon, and I heard from one of my local walmarts that, the last they knew, they weren't going to recieve any shipments until june! It's ridiculous. Limited supply+scalpers+huge demand= SNAFU.

    Lenox Mall one in Buckhead. Here without a car, so it has to be something I can Marta to. I got there early this morning and the sign was already up that they were out of stock for the day.

    If you have an idea where I could look let me know. I'd love a 64 gig black ATT ready Ipad2. Many coworkers have either the original or the newer iPad and I'm ready to hop on that train.

    They don't even have most of these in the stores and want you to order online.

    If you do that you better use digikey.

    Radio Shack will be out of the RETAIL business within 3-5 years IMO.

    Nothing in there one needs.

    Great, another store that carries iPad 2 but won't ever have any in stock. LOL.

    Unfortunately I think 80% of iPad 2 supply is going to scalpers and resellers, the moment Apple stores get them in stock they sell out and craigslist is then flooded with heavily marked up iPads. It's kind of ridiculous.

    On a related note, isn't it a bit weird Apple hasn't announced any sales figures yet? They're usually quick to brag when devices hit a million sales in a short amount of time.

    Man, that picture gives me a headache. For future reference, image stabilization can help with that sort of thing.
