From the information out there it appears the actual sales of the devices could be as soon as March 2nd, and as late as June. But sprinkle in some logic, coupled with the iPad 1 inventories and shipments, and I would venture to guess as follows: Pre-orders on line start right away after the event on the 2nd. But the actual device in-hand won't happen for anyone until some time between this coming weekend and a week from the 2nd. Devices reach pre-orderers and resellers around the same date. The reasons: iPad 1 inventories are drying up quickly; Apple wouldn't want a void with the competition out there. So we're not looking at anywhere from April to June. March 2nd is too quick. In that shipments of the iPad 2 need to be made to resellers, and businesses who make cases and other things to protect these devices need a little time to crank out their products. Not that a few days is much time. Would prefer to be wrong about that, though; prefer immediate availability.
