I spoke with the Apple specialist at my local Best Buy, and she told me this: "The iPad will not be available here for launch on April 3rd. We're hoping to get it by the end of April." Then, a big, assertive bald guy came over--another Apple specialist (supervisor?) and interrupted her. He said this: "Apple is very excited about the upcoming launch of the iPad. We are currently looking into the various distribution channels, and right now we don't know if the iPad will be available at Best Buy for launch on April 3rd. Check back soon for more information." Interesting. It seems like he was trying to cover up what she was saying. So it seems, at least, that some Best Buy locations will not have the iPad? At worst no locations will have it. Luckily I'll be at home in Kansas City on that day for Easter weekend, so I can pick it up at The Plaza or Leawood Apple Stores. Sucks if you live in a small town though. Does mail pre-order arrive on a Saturday?
