Apple has announced that the iPad Pro will be available this November... but the looming questions is... WHEN IN NOVEMBER????

So, I'd like poll you all to see what people are guessing.

-I'm expecting that it will be a Monday-Friday release (do we really expect it will be a weekend day?).
-Also, I'm expecting that it'll be released at least the week before Thanksgiving (not the week of Thanksgiving, as some large companies are going to be shutting down their corporate offices for the whole week).
-Additionally, I'm guessing that Apple will want to give us the opportunity to blow our holiday gifting budget on the new iPad Pro well before the Black Friday sales and madness begins.

So I would guess November 20th is the latest that Apple would release the iPad Pro.
Is it me, or does Apple have a thing for Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday releases?

I have tot think they will want to get it out sooner than later and really amp up on holiday purchases. If they release it a the end of the month and then their are huge supply constraints, it might be good for media coverage and 3rd party sales, but I don't think that is what they want here.

They should do it as soon as possible. I mean the whole thankksgiving black friday thing is a horror show. Best to stay away if possible.

Nov. 3rd--I am surprised it wasn't released in October, like previous iPads. They will slip it right over the line and it will be everywhere by the Black Friday hell-market festival.

Of course I hope early November. I'm just wondering if supply will be constricted? On another, on a related topic.... Apple seems not to want us to buy in store anymore. I've been in the local Apple Store in recent months and it seems like the salespeople steer eager customers to ordering online, even if they are standing in the store. Apple supply and demand issues? Tag and bag 'em and move on to the next customer?

Anyone want to guess when we can pre order. Dont want to miss the date.

Rumours are that it will be launched early november, so i guess pre order date may be only a week or 2 away?

This poll reminds me of my Econ 101 professor. He was uninterested in our ability to guess on exams so we had multiple choice options up to the letter k. Maybe more.
lol those were the worst. And they would work out the problem wrong in multiple ways and put the wrong answers on there!

Do we get any warning about when it will go on pre-order sale? Like and announcement or something?

We need more rumors. Lies will do.

It's so boring here :D

As a rule, yes. Usually there'll be an announcement "Product X will be available on <date>. Pre-orders begin at midnight PDT on <date-(7 days)>." That announcement usually comes a couple of weeks ahead of availability, more or less.

Thanks

So will will have a day or two i'm guessing. Being what it is, I don't think it will sell out, but you never know.

I think i'm going to settle for 32GB and save $150. Get in at the lower end (there is no 'low' end ).

Not that saving $150 is going help much
