Went to the Apple Store in Altamonte Springs, FL over lunch Friday (3/16). No waiting. Bought the 16 GB, Verizon 4G version. They were very helpful getting it set up and synched with my MBP 15. When I went to the Verizon store to activate the 4G feature, they received 20 units of the new iPad and were sold out at 3 pm.
I also have an iPad2 synched with my wife's notebook that is full of games for a toddler almost in kindergarten, wifi only.
I do not notice a speed difference with wifi between the iPad2 and 3. The display is better and noticeable, 25% is my guess. As others have stated, the 3 does run warmer.
I needed the 4G and personal wireless hotspot feature of the 3. I have a 10mb download/1mb upload wifi system and the 4G feature is almost as fast but a tad slower.
I have a DSLR camera so I have yet to take any photos or video with the iPad yet.
So far, I am happy
