    Mine will be available by 5 at my home via delivery. No line expected.
    As for the Apple Store...start camping out now! :eek:

    Right... As I posted elsewhere, We don't know how much Apple has compensated for how the WiFi rollout went to make things go better this Friday. and, there is the whole 'everyone's seen it' now, so, do they want it more or less? (They will stand in line or went and pre-ordered...)

    From a scientific standpoint, it's too little data and only one test case: this Friday. So, with no alternate universes (at least, no way to get to them...), the answer is: wait and see.

    Doc Brown to the rescue!

    Seriously though...I didn't preorder since I just decided to get an iPad this week. Wife said she would like one and Mothers Day is right around the corner. Plan on showing up at my local BB about an hour before they open. We'll see how it goes!

    On April 3rd intomobile.com had a live video feed from the Palo Alto, CA store, are they planning one for the April 30th 3G event?

    For the wifi iPad people were able to walk In no problem and get an iPad, I felt like a fool for pre ordering. I wouldn't sweat the 3G launch either.

    More hype has been built, "shortages" of the wifi models already, the international release pushed back.....
    I'd say this launch will be bigger than the wifi..

    I could be absolutely wrong, I hope so for your sake. It could be less of a crowd then the wifi launch... Just a lot of signs point to it being bigger.
    These ebay jackholes are gonna be scoopin em up again now that the international launch is delayed too.. I'd say get there as early as you can!
    Good Luck!

    Can I use you to play the lottery? Hehe! :p

    You are so right about the Ebay folks and we all know Craiglisters will be out in full too. You might have to camp out to get a reserve ticket if you are going to Best Buy.

    Dude, it's 5 AM, not PM. Don't look the fool by showing up twelve hours late and asking for an iPad 3G. lol!

    Get there early!

    I am one of those eBay aholes. Gotta pay for my new MBP and iPad somehow. BTW, I have paid with both of them fully with the profit of selling iPads on eBay.

    I understand you gotta make a buck and honestly I have no problem with it. It just sucks when I cant find one. People like you are the first to get blamed ;)

    Too much work, Selling Derivatives is much easier and more lucrative.


    Hopefully the Ebay aholes will not be in full force friday when I go line up to buy my tax deductible iPad with legitimately earned money selling derivatives.

    I have a weird feeling that those eBay jackholes are going to find themselves with a limit to how many they can purchase. Nothing is worth my time if it's only going to net me a few bucks, I'd venture to guess a smart eBay seller would feel the same.

    First week I was netting $110 per iPad. Now I am netting around $60-$75 per. Still not bad. Pays for the gas and groceries.
