Order iPad 2 Online At 12:01 AM PST Or From Apple Retail Stores At 5:00 PM On March 11th
It looks like iPad 2 wonâ€™t be available for pre-orders so you wonâ€™t be able to avoid the long lines if you want to be one of the first to get your hands on an iPad 2.
MacRumors reports that Apple sales rep are telling customers that they will be able to order the iPad 2 from 12:01 PST on March 11th on Appleâ€™s Online store or be able to pick up the new iPad 2 from Apple Retail stores at 5:00 pm on March 11th.
Apple is telling customers that online sales will begin at 12:01 Pacific Time on March 11th, or customers can go to Apple Retail stores at 5 p.m. on March 11th to get one in hand that day. There will likely be long lines for the iPad 2 launch day since Apple is only accepting online orders the day of launch, and standing in line will be the only way to get your hands on an iPad 2 before the following week.
Apple unveiled the second generation iPad at the â€˜Come See What 2011 Will Be Year Ofâ€™ event last week. iPad 2 is 33% thinner, 15% lighter than the original iPad, comes with the same 9.7 inch screen and features Appleâ€™s new dual-core A5 chip for faster performance and better graphics, front facing camera for FaceTime and PhotoBooth and a rear facing camera that captures 720p HD video.
Apple fan, Justin Wagoner has already started camping outside Apple Retail store in Dallas, Texas to be the first in line for iPad 2, almost four days before the launch day.
Some of you might call this crazy but Robert Scoble once aptly put it “waiting in line for an Apple product is glorious, even if it is idiotic.”
