Same here. I was just in the Houston galleria apple store. Except they DID have them..watched one family buy 3 right in front of me, 3G.I ordered mine online during the week due to the fact. No Bestbuys or Apple stores have them near by.
You must live in a magical fantasy Springfield MO then... because the one here has only received 5 iPads this entire week. 3 64GB wifi's and 2 32GB. Which were all sold out within 3 hours of UPS dropping them off.Springfield Mo BestBuy, 2 each of the wifi models.
It is like WWII and GIs. Overpriced, overly sexy and over here.At the Durham Apple Store yesterday, an employee told me the shortage has something to do with meeting demand for units in the newly opened markets of Europe, Australia, and Asia at the end of this month.
Funny, while I was in Seattle for the iPad 3G launch, the Alderwood Mall Apple Store was the only one with 3G stock on the Sunday after the launch. They had huge carts at the front door and were basically handing the iPads to people as they walked through the door. Heard so many people say they were from out of State because it was the only store with any stock.I got mine in Washington, at the Alderwood Mall Apple Store. I just walked in and I was told that they have "plenty in stock." Not sure about the other stores in the area.
I went into the store and looked into the locked cage area right up front by the Customer Service. If you want I'll snap a photo.Really, How do you know? I just checked the online stock checker for BB and it shows Zero of all models.
not saying your lying, just wondered how you came about that info.
