    I was at the Apple store at around noon. I had some questions and the guy told me they had every day (of course already sold for today) a few iPad2s coming in all this week.
    That is the Apple store in Luoisville KY Oxmoore Mall.
    This is what he told me. So good luck!

    I was there Saturday morning and did not get one (there were about 20 something, all 32 gig wifi). Sunday morning and Monday morning both they did not even get a single iPad. They said that they do receive shipments daily (even Sunday) but they are not sure until they open them whether there are iPads in them or not. They say whether they have any or not some time between 8-9 am (closer to 9 am today), but by that time there are so many people in line, if there were any, you would not get one at the end of the line. So, the three options in Louisville are
    1. scavenging the online stock checkers and rushing to Walmart, Best Buy, or Target,
    2. ordering online and getting it some time in May, or
    3. lining up at 4 AM outside the Oxmoor mall and making friends with the security guard to let you stay there and keep your place in line. Normally you're told to wait in your car, but with iPad 2 fever, playing by the rules means somebody who gets there after you and hasn't been told lines up right in front of you.

    Apple flubbed this one big time. They should have handled it like the iPad last year, where you could reserve online for in-store pickup. That way, you would know for sure if you were going to get one, and they would know how many to ship and where to ship them. This waiting 4 hours only to get told there are none whatsoever is not going to keep a lot of folks motivated to try.

    I don't have a whole lot of choice, I have to get it for development. If I were only interested due to my geekness, I'd just give up and wait til September for the HP TouchPad, the only other tablet that cranked up my geek meter this year. By then, I should be able to buy one or the other without any of these lines and uncertainty.

    Target at Springhurst has several. All colors and sizes (only wifi, though). Just left with a 32gb white iPad 2 five minutes ago. There were still several in the case.

    Thanks for the tip KYbrucewayne. I went out there and got a 32GB white wifi. When I left they had a couple white wifi 64GBs and I think more 32s in the back.
