    I hope so. My mother surprised me today by purchasing me an iPad ( I guess I talk too much about it. lol.) I only have 15 days to return/exchange.

    Why do you say that? Wouldn't it be the same time?

    I've asked this before in the front page forum and no one bothered speculating... Too busy shouting at each other over specs.

    I honestly and truly believe that the iPad will be available a day or two after the event.

    Think about it this way, how often has apple announced a upgraded product and not made it available almost immediately. I know, iPhone, but that relies on other companies collaboration to sell iPhones, as a carrier is required. Apple dont like telling masses of people (i.e. carrier's employee's) ahead of a product launch about unreleased gadgets, so that week or so is for AT&T to get their staff clued up on whats happening.

    It would be madness to not have this product available as soon as, because current sales of 1st gen products would plummet.

    Ipod touches, ipods, macbooks and MBP's all get releases almost instantly in most cases. Obviously iPad1 could afford the delay in the initial launch because theres nothing competing, or was currently available for you to buy otherwise.

    I am expecting the next iPad to be out on thursday for me to go to an apple store to pick up and take home. And will be very surprised if it takes apple longer than a week from announcement to release the thing.

    (this is a x-post from another thread in this forum.)

    If anyone can give me reason to think otherwise, 3rd march at 9am it is!

    I believe that the iPad will be available for preorder immediately, with general availability by the end of March.

    Yes, but it appears that Apple has already put the brakes on production of the current iPad and supplies have been dwindling, so I'm not sure they're all that concerned about current sales (they have the best handle on how to deal with it).

    Wait until the new one is announced. If iPad2 has new features you like, return what you have and just wait for the new one to become available to exchange. I think the Apple store will be understanding. Otherwise, just enjoy your gift !
