Where and When Can I Buy the iPad 2?

10 Mar

Where and When Can I Buy the iPad 2?The iPad 2 is coming out tomorrow, March 11th. Do you know where you’re going to buy one from? Do you know who’s selling them? We’ll tell you all you need to know right here.

So Where Can I Buy One?

At your local Apple Store, of course. But the usual big brick and mortar stores, Best Buy, Target, Wal-Mart, will also be selling it on launch day (though they’re mum on how many they have in stock). AT&T and Verizon retail stores will also be selling but only offering the electronic gadgets of iPad 3G version that works with their network.

 

When Does It Go on Sale?

Every store will start selling the iPad 2 at 5:00PM Local Time. So you don’t have to call in sick to work (but you may take a half day).

 

How Much Will It Cost?

Same as last year. $499 for 16GB Wi-Fi only, $599 for 32GB Wi-Fi only, and $699 for 64GB Wi-Fi only. 3G models range from $629 for 16GB Wi-Fi + 3G, $729 for 32GB Wi-Fi + 3G, and $829 for 64GB Wi-Fi +3G.

 

Same Price for Black and White right?

Yep, same price for either color and both will be available on launch day. No one has confirmed how many of each will be available but we’d imagine most stores will have more black units than white units.

 

Wait, Can I Pre-Order One?

Yes! But for some reason, Apple will only begin taking pre-orders on Apple.com at 4:00AM EST / 1:00AM PST tomorrow, March 11th. AT&T has also confirmed that they’ll be selling the iPad 2 electronic gadgets at 4:00AM EST / 1:00AM PST as well. So you’re either waking up really early, staying up really late or maybe not changing your sleeping schedule at all you lucky West Coast folks.

 

Will There Be Crazy Lines?

Because it’s a new Apple product, probably. But Apple’s been getting better at divvying up stock to different retailers so it might be a tad better. In any case, call your local retailer to check their status before you go. (Don’t worry that picture isn’t from tomorrow’s iPad 2 launch)

 

Where Else Can I Buy It Online Then?

Best Buy and Wal-Mart both have product pages for the iPad 2 up on their website, so they might sell it there as well. AT&T has confirmed that they’ll start selling at 4:00AM EST / 1:00AM PST online.
