    I got off work at 5:30 got to BB before 6 they sold out in minutes. Are Best Buys Targets and Walmarts getting shipments randomly or do they know if there going to have them? I live in the NOVA are and everysingle place sold out in minutes. I read on some post that places are expecting more shipment tomorrow, why would they stagger it like this?

    Shipment amount and type seem pretty random. Our local Target got 5 64GB Verizon models. Had sold 3 by 8:30pm.

    I would love to be in an area of low demand but there isnt an apple store that close by but 2 or 3 BB Walmart and Target around here and they all sold out, BB told me all they had left was 32 White Verzion :/

    No low demand areas suck! I am in one. Probably 50 people in the whole county trying to get one but they only had WiFi versions (I wanted 3G) and after the few 16GB and 32GB ones were sold just a bunch of 64GB Wifi iPad 2s laying around that no one wants because they can't afford them.

    Not so much low demand as mismatched type delivery. People in Target are most likely not looking for the top-end model. Those should have gone to the Apple store and Target should have gotten the 16GB WiFi models.

    Although it does seem like the 64GB Verizon model is the least desirable one. Even our local Apple store still had some of those left, and the line at 5pm was probably over 100 people.

    I wanted the 16gb Wifi, I almost need the 32 but i think i can squeeze another year out of a 16 before bothe my phone and iPad need to be 32gb, I think 64 works great if you mass storing/ replacing your Comp

    I feel for people with no apple stores. I knew Best Buy, Target and walmart would get the worst shipments ever.
