    For those that couldn't get their pre-orders in for launch day, get in while you can at RadioShack with a $50 down payment [ in the form of a GC ].

    I stopped by one today and it looks like people either are not expecting them to get get any stock, or are not aware about Pre-orders at the Shack!!

    Just a heads up!

    Goodluck!!!! :apple:

    you're right lol. I just called but someone said they only got 22 TOTAL last year and apple told me to stop doing pre-orders. You'd have to be first in line there also.

    I wonder what their return policy is etc.

    I called and the person told me they are taking pre-orders. I asked if this means I am guaranteed one on launch day. The person asked someone else at the store as they weren't sure, then come back on the line saying nope, no pre-orders are being done after all and I should go through Apple.

    They sure did. Here is a rough transcript:

    Me: Hey, I was wondering if I could pre-order the new iPad

    Radio Shack Clerk: Sure, but we can only do pre-orders in the store so you'd have to come in. I can't do it over the phone.

    Me: Oh okay, not a problem. I can be there in a few minutes. Quick question though, am I guaranteed to get one on launch day if I pre-order?

    Radio Shack Clerk: Let me check on that for you

    *puts me on hold*

    Radio Shack Clerk: Actually, I am being told we aren't doing pre-orders for the iPad at all. You'll have to go to Apple for that.
