    So how does Apple work their magic with online sales when 5pm local means nothing online (for the most part). So when would Apple sell it online? I'm thinking 3:01am Mar 11th.

    No idea, but I sure wish Amazon sold them. I'd love to get it shipped next day for $4 and no tax!

    Amazon is not an authorized reseller for iPads. Hopefully they will become one and actually start selling iPads so I can get free two day shipping with Prime. Since Amazon isn't selling it, I guess I will buy it from Abt then... no sales tax!

    After chatting with an Apple Employee, they confirmed that they do not know when you will be able to order one, nor the shipping options. So don't expect it Friday.

    If Amazon Germany accidentally listed the iPad 2 early, doesn't that mean that Amazon will sell this device? They have always sold the iPod Touch.

    It will be available for pre-order on the 11th though. To me, I feel that saving on the taxes is better than getting it early.
