? about ordering iPad online
 
We know the iPad will be available at stores at 5pm on Friday, however I can't find anywhere what time it will be available to order online.

Not sure it really matters, since it won't ship that day anyway. Probably earlier in the day if I had to guess.

Why will they not ship that day?

i am ordering mine online as well.. those lines will be insane.

I don't know if the lines will be so bad. I guess we'll see soon enough.

I'm flying to FL for vacation Friday morning. I really want to pre-order, but also want to try my luck at getting one from a store while on vacation to get my hands on it ASAP. Not sure if I should press my luck with an in-store pickup.

Wish you could reserve one like they did with the iPhone 3G release.

Because it will be next to impossible. Rarely, if ever do any companies ship the same day you order. They batch ship orders, especially large companies, because it cuts down on their shipping costs.

Thanks! I still don't see that anywhere, but I'll take your word for it, lol. Looks like I'll be up at 3:00am (Eastern time) to order.
