    So the retail Apple Store website now has this message on it's front page:

    "Also available at the Apple Retail Store*"

    "*Supplies may be limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.:

    Therefore I figured I'd start a thread so people can report if they find any iPad 2's in stock at their local Apple Stores.

    No luck in TX yet for me. I called several Apple Stores and they all gave me the same "no release date has been set" message.

    Am standing outside Apple Store soho in NYC. All wifi models on sale and available. They are not in the display yet but confirmed with a particularly knowledgable Genius.

    Go go go.

    All stores in my area show in stock for various models on Apple's website. I would have been better off not pre-ordering though 1 extra day of waiting won't kill me :)

    Literally just returned from a special trip to the store and they told me no. Just checked the site when I got back and was able to order an Air 2 and smart cover for in store pick up today :confused:

    Better than not getting it at all as I'm leaving for a trip tomorrow that I wanted to use the new iPad for, but the whole secret release thing is ridiculous. If they actually at least told their employees when they would get them in that wouldn't have happened.

    I'm curious why there are no cellular models available at retail.

    All Apple Stores near me (Charleston SC) have Wifi models. No cellular models though. It seems like those aren't available anywhere yet.

    Nothing in Waterloo ON, Canada Apple store. I was told tomorrow, providing they receive stock. Employee expected all versions/colours wifi and 4G/LTE to be in stock. Take it for what it's worth.

    BTW, retail employees appear not to be aware of the stock in their stores. The online system determines this.

    After all, it's just retail.

    The store in Richmond, VA has all colors & sizes of Wifi available for in-store pickup right now.

    I wonder if LTE versions will be available in-store tomorrow?

    For whatever reason, the closest Apple Store to me in Phoenix (Biltmore) is not showing any stock available. Most other stores in Arizona are reporting stock.

    Awesome! I ended up taking a nap for a while (I work nights so my sleep schedule is all over the place) and woke up to this great news!

    I successfully placed an order for a 64 gb space grey wifi model. Waiting for the order is ready email. Now to choose a case. I'm guessing only the Apple Store will have Air 2 cases in stock since nobody else is selling it yet?

    Anybody that ordered today already receive the email that their order was ready or pick it up yet?

    Did they have any other covers besides the smart case/smart cover in store? Not sure how good that smart case in (never owned a smart case/cover) but it seems a bit pricey at $80.
