When will the "New" ipad be available to order for pickup in stores? Anyone know?

Chatted with an Apple person on apple.com. By paying ahead of time, I was told I could pick up my device on that date since I would be busy most of the day.

Apple is advertising that they will be available to walk-ins at their stores on March 16, which means each store had a certain number of preorder devices allocated, and then some extras. If it's like how it was last time I did the pre-order online, pickup in store thing, in the morning there will be two lines - preorders get in first, then walk-ins. But preorders should be able to pick theirs up any time that day, second day it goes up for grabs.

Pre-orders were allowing Store Pickup as an option, but I believe they have stopped this now. Must have sold out of the in-store stock they allotted for store pickups.
Perhaps one good thing about in-store pickup is that maybe you don't get a shipping notice and then watch it obsessively like a maniac. :)
