    I was just skimming though and noticed it wasn't on there. Why is that?

    From the FAQ

    Since the second generation just came out, it will be updated soon to reflect it
    Already in the works

    A better question might be, how does the Buyers guide list the Ipad as out for 10 days when it was released 2 days ago?

    Probably because the iPad 2 was introduced 10 days ago.

    But the buyers guide is about when you can buy things, not when they are introduced. Some Apple products are introduced months before they come out. Doesn't make any sense.

    You are correct. Now that the iPad is available for sale, we've updated the buyer's guide to properly reflect the update date.

    We sometimes have to fudge things a bit when Apple pre-announces products in order to get the message across that new models have been announced but aren't yet available. And we hadn't updated from that transition state, but things should be good to go now.

    I guess, but Apple.com wasn't really selling iPads after the announcement. So maybe that is why.

    *edit* - just saw the above post
