I just checked the pre-order status of the iPad I ordered to be shipped to the store in Brandon, Fl and it says it's ready for pickup!!!

It also says I need to get it by the 25th.

Is there anyway they would give this to me on a technicality!?!

Double check that you didn't order an iPad2 by mistake....

I'm on the phone with Apple right now and they said not to worry about the pickup email notification. They said that it's an automatically-generated email once the store receives their iPad inventory that's shipped to them.

Go down there immediately, they'll definitely give you your ipad 2 days early.

Maybe you need to read the notice a little more carefully. There is no way in hades an Apple store will give it to you early. No way.

The email says it's ready for pickup but not until the 16th. If you take a closer look at the pick it clearly says that pickup is available March 16th. Apple just sent these out now to confirm availability.

You might have to wait in a pre-order line. If it's anything like the first iphone 4, it's will be huge. But if it is like the first ipad 1 sale, it won't be bad.
